Some Young Punks Passion Has Red Lips 2009

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Vintage: 2009
Type: Red Blend
Country: Australia

This wine from SYP is spectacular.  Full of ripe berries, oak and vanilla with some big legs and a long finish. Highly Recommend.

Some Young Punks Riesling Monsters, Monsters, Attack! 2009

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Vintage: 2009
Type: Riesling
Country: Australia – Clare Valley

If you thought that bright, juicy Rieslings could only originate from Germany or the Alsace region, think again. This Australian beauty just bursts with fruity fragrances and flavours that make my mouth water.

The bottle is tall and slim like most Germanic whites but the label is thoroughly untraditional: it has a scene of Godzilla attacking a city and all the skyscrapers falling down. Could this be a metaphor for the Riesling knocking my taste buds out?

This went down well with a salmon fillet and oriental stir fry.

Some Young Punks The Squid’s Fist 2009

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Vintage: 2009
Type: Sangiovese Blend
Country: Australia

This Sangiovese-Shiraz blend from the Some Young Punks winery is quite enjoyable. The bottle is a work of pulp art, one of the winery’s trademarks.

The wine has smooth tannins with chocolate and cherries on the pallet. The finish has a nice hint of herbs, which is subtle but noticeable. Drink with a hearty fare.

Some Young Punks Battle Island 2009

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2009
Type: Shiraz Cabernet
Country: Australia – South Australia

Nice full bodied Shiraz Cabernet from Australia, displaying typical characteristics from an Aussie Shiraz – big bold fruit and high alcohol content. The tannins are still quite young and strong in the wine, which hints that it will stand up to a bit of ageing. Full flavours of cranberry and blackcurrant with hints of pepper and spice.
