    The Punks tasty McLaren Vale red is sourced from eight core vineyards and this vintage is 54% Cabernet and 46% Shiraz. The vine age varies between 9 and 35 years. After up to ten days on skins the juice is pressed to neutral French barriques (30%). The Cabernet provides the acidity and elongated tannin giving the supple Shiraz shape and structure. There's lovely fleshy fruit that floods the mouth and glides across the palate. Then there's excellent, cool, fresh acidity and tannins balancing the wines sweet fruit from the long, cool growing season. Great wine.

    Producer

    Col McBryde and Jen Gardner (of Adelina Wines) got together with good friend Nic Bourke in 2006 to establish the Some Young Punks label. Despite the humour and fun reflected by these labels, the Adelina team is deadly serious when it comes to their wines. The small scale production is traditional and minimalist with hand-picking in small lots, indigenous yeast fermentations, basket pressing and no filtration. The Punks (aka Col, Jen & Nic) source fruit from all over South Australia and the wine is made principally at the Adelina winery. This is a producer well worth following!

    Region

    South Australia’s Clare Valley, besides being one of Australia’s prettiest wine regions, is ground-zero for Riesling and a large selection of the countries finest examples. Approximately 120km north of Adelaide, the Clare Valley boasts a great diversity of soil types and a number of famous sub-regions along its length such as Polish Hill River, Watervale, Leasingham, Sevenhill and the Skillogalee Valley. Clare Valley Riesling is vivid in its purity, always having a reputation for being very precise and driven, though in recent times, we are seeing some producers play with skin contact and seasoned oak adding to the regions interest. It isn’t only white varieties that shine in the Clare with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz do particularly well and it is the home of the stellar red wines of Australian wine royalty, Wendouree. Local Knowledge: The breakfast ramen at ‘`Seed’ in Clare with a glass of German Kabinett Riesling is a stroke of genius.
