Passion Has Red Lips Cabernet Shiraz, Some Young Punks, Mclaren Vale, South Australia 2016  

Shiraz 51%, Cabernet Sauvignon 49%

A rich mouthful of lip-smacking, sensuously structured Clare Shiraz and McLaren Cabernet, it's Punks best vintage to date. Though it's quite a 'pretty' wine, it has an electrifying vibrant nose of ripe red cherry, cranberry, black fruit, aromatic smoke, vanilla and violets lead to a concentrated palate of cranberry and sour cherries, with more savoury flavours of black tapenade, herbs and a hint of tobacco. A precise and astute wine with plenty of appeal.

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 of the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren't moved by porty Shiraz and seek 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 labeling. Expect to see increasingly alarming labels sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines. Grapes are carefully monitored and purchased locally.
