Product Description

A rich gobful of lip-smacking, sensuously structured McLaren Cabernet and Clare Shiraz, Passion is a beautifully lush, alluring blend replete with lifted, generous fruit, an exotic bouquet and a black heart.

Producer Details
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 seeks instead a sense of place and restraint the wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and the New. Col McBryde is as unimpressed by flash-in-the-pan medal-winners that are short on provenance as he is by being hide-bound to the Old World, and carves his own niche. Yet being media savvy and having a sense of humour allows this ironically quietly-spoken but earnest bunch to market themselves outrageously and to bring a fresh approach to labelling. Expect to see increasingly alarming label sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines.

In the Vineyard
From vines aged between 15 and 22 years old, the soils are brown sandy loam on clay base.

In the Winery
The wine spent between 6 - 15 days on the skins before it was pressed. Malolactic fermentation then took place before maturing. Ageing took place over 11 months in a combination of neutral and French oak barriques.

Press Quotes
An expansive bouquet displays high-pitched red berry, floral and Asian spice scents, with a subtle note of licorice adding depth. Sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors are impressively energetic, showing a pinot-like suppleness that's very attractive. The floral element repeats strongly on the persistent, penetrating finish. 90 points. July 2010, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar.

If you like big robust Red wines then this is for you!
Bursting with flavour, ideal with red meat and/or cheese.
Label always attracts favourable comments!! A little expensive but a great quality wine that is worth the premium.
