Some Young Punks 'Naked On Roller Skates' Shiraz Mataro 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is part of the Pulp Series. Inspired by images as bright and intense as their wines. Some Young Punks hand select their original cover works from ‘low brow’ literature of the 20s through to the 50s, as well as having their own exotic sirens designed to draw attention seemed the best way to clothe their wines and avoid becoming wallflowers. 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 amongst 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 in their wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and of the New. This Shiraz Mataro blend is a case in point; providing an intense burst of fruit, yet maintaining a superb freshness. The perfect compliment for barbecue food, or try with something a little spicier. Drink over the next 2-3 years.
