Sangiovese and Shiraz grapple for supremacy in this bottle of wills where you are the winner. A black attack of McLaren Vale Shiraz, cleverly enveloped in the grip of Barossa sourced Sangiovese.  Sour cherries, plums and sweet spices lead to a light silky mouth feel, with firm tannins, raspberries and a pinch of black pepper. The wine is vivacious and fresh with hints of smoke and tar.  

Blend: Sangiovese (60%) Shiraz (40%)

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.
