Style Dry and crisp
A very pale straw colour with a faint greenish tinge. The nose is floral (blossom), with a slightly green herbaceous note and a background confectionery note. The palate is full and rounded and is reminiscent of a tropical fruit salad, packed with definite passion fruit, lychee and mango flavours. The palate is dry and crisp but this is deceptive because there is a good burst of natural sweetness at the front of the palate as well. Generous, up front and fruity with more crispness and minerality. None of the sweetness but plenty of grip and liveliness on the tight finish.

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.
