The two latest additions to the Some Young Punks range involve sisters Trixie and Tessa Love fighting monsters and ninja’s down in Trouble Town, and an all wise naked young lady on roller skates. And just when you thought the Punks couldn’t get any more weird or random. Still, whatever you think of their artwork on the bottle, it’s their craft and ingenuity on the inside that counts. Pictured below, their garage-style winery at sunset.
Double Love Trouble (T’N’T)
Trouble always sticks to sisters Trixie and Tessa Love – but this time, it’s Double Love Trouble! This wine was awarded 90 points at the International Wine Competition, showing that making class wine is where the brilliance of the Punks really lies. The Tempranillo (50%) comes from Adelaide Hills and the Shiraz (50%) from Clare Valley. Fourteen months in French oak barriques has brought extra layers of flavour and a smooth finish with a hint of spice from the Shiraz.
Naked on Roller Skates (The Pulp Series)
An unscrupulous rake – an all-wise young lady – an unexpected love affair. The Punks hand selected this original artwork from ‘low brow’ literature of the 20’s through 50’s for The Pulp Series. You neither have to like hillsides or nudity to enjoy this wine. The Shiraz & Mataro (Mourvèdre) are sourced from high quality vineyards in McLaren Vale. It’s a versatile little number, with expressive notes of musk and violets, and the palate is dense with black fruits and juniper spice.
