Rich red berry fruit flavours on the palate with a kick of spice from the shiraz, beautifully balanced with a long finish. Some Young Punks epitomise the best of New Australia. The punks consist of Col McBryde (voted Australia's Young Gun Winemaker of the Year), Jen Gardner (self confessed nerdy yeast expert) and thirdly Nic Bourke. Like most amongst the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren't moved by porty Shiraz and seeks instead a sense of place and restraint the wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and the New. Col McBryde is as unimpressed by flash-in-the-pan medal-winners that are short on provenance as he is by being hide-bound to the Old World, and carves his own niche. Yet being media savvy and having a sense of humour allows this ironically quietly-spoken but earnest bunch to market themselves outrageously and to bring a fresh approach to labelling. Expect to see increasingly alarming label sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines.

Press Quotes 2010 Vintage: " Deep, bright purple. Cherry and blackberry on the vibrant, spicy nose. Juicy and intensely flavored, with very good clarity to the potent black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes spicy and gently tannic, with a lingering note of candied cherry. Plenty rich but there's good energy and cut here as well." 90/100, IWC Magazine, August 2011
