Some Young Punks The Squids Fist Sangiovese Shiraz
With their punk attitude to winemaking, Colin McBryde, Jen Gardner and Nic Bourke make wines with charisma and attitude. “Each time we make a wine”, they say, “it may be the last wine we make – and if it isn’t worthy of being the last then it will never wear the Some Young Punks name.”
Some Young Punks Squids Fist Sangiovese Shiraz is a black attack of McLaren Vale Shiraz, which is cleverly enveloped in Barossa-sourced Sangiovese.
Pungent bright berries, cherry compote and musky herbs on the nose, with sexy rose and incense qualities gaining strength with air. Broad and fleshy on entry, then turns nervier in the middle palate, showing dense cherry and floral flavors. Dusty tannins add grip and focus to the long, precise finish.
