An electrifying vibrant nose of ripe red cherry, cranberry, black fruit, aromatic smoke, vanilla, violets and treacle 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 interest. The Shiraz gives warmth and roundness of flavour, while the Cabernet Sauvignon, with its blackcurrant fruit, lends elegance. Complex aromas of red and dark berries, pungent herbs and fresh flowers with juicy plum and cassis flavours with a hint of mint and spice on the palate.

Some Young Punks epitomise the best of New Australia. The winemakers, also knowns as the 'punks' consist of Col McBryde (voted Australia's Young Gun Winemaker of the Year), Jen Gardner (self confessed nerdy yeast expert) and 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. 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 labels sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines. Grapes are chosen carefully and thoroughly monitored and purchased locally. In true punks fashion there's a twist to the wine making process; there's some oak fermentation and some solids fermentation.
