SOME YOUNG PUNKS ‘NAKED ON ROLLER SKATES’ SHIRAZ MATARO
A Shiraz/Mataro to die for this nakedly ambitious blend rolls with delight. Expressive notes of musk, violets and charcuterie meats. The palate is dense with black fruits, a little quince and juniper spice. 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. Their trade mark is alarming labels sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines. Grapes are carefully selected from local growers.
Food Recommendation: Great with lamb curries, duck with hoisin sauce.
