Shiraz Mourvedre Limestone McLaren South Australia
A pure Mourvedre wine from fruit grown to good McLaren Vale sites, crafted into an extremely limited release of a few hundred dozen. Parcels are vinified for two or three weeks on skins before being pressed to French oak barriques for malolactic ferment and fourteen months maturation. Not many wines come with instructions, Some Young Punks make the assumption that you'll know just what to do when Lust Collides.
Each wine, each vintage and each label is a moment that will never come again, a winemaker should only ever promise to be consistently good, not just consistent. Each time Punks make a wine it may be the last, if it isn't worthy of being the last then it will not wear the Some Young Punks name. Punks believe that awesome wine is a powerful aid to creativity. The truth is that the wines so far have almost made themselves. The best fruit always does. But even the best fruit won't jump into a crusher by itself, so Punks help out a little in that respect. This beautiful tradeoff leaves plenty of time to talk and drink and then talk some more. And when it's time, they'll bottle it. Presto.
Red, scarlet colour with bright robes. Earthy aromas with cherry and plum, a tad spice, cinammon, pepper and sangria. A frolic of toothsome dark berries on the animated palate, strawberry and black currant, refreshed by light and exhilarating acids. A complex wine with full integration between vibrant fruit and subdued treacle oak, immediately ready to enjoy and immensely suited to good food.
