Some Young Punks
Some Young Punks was born in 2006, established by a creative trio of young Australian winemakers. These three punks are Jen Gardener and Col McBryde, who established Adelina Wines in the Clare Valley in 2002, and their good friend Nic Bourke. Their vision was to make charismatic wines that were true to what they thought wine should be about: expressing a sense of place, influenced by the old world and the new. In short, to make exceptional wines with small estate charm. They source their fruit from different South Australian areas and the wines are principally made at the Adelina winery. They wanted the images on their labels to be as bright and intense as their wines. Inspired by original Pulp Fiction novels and pop art, these psychedelic interpretations of witty names, like The Squid's First Sangiovese and Double Love Trouble certainly grab your attention but, although they are fun and humorous, the team are deadly serous about their wines. They take a minimal approach to winemaking with hand-picked fruit in small lots, native yeast short ferments and judicious use of oak. They make wine with charisma and attitude, punchy and vibrant. Some Young Punks succinctly sum up their philosophy, saying that “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, never just consistent. Each time a wine is produced it may be the last wine made – and if it isn't worthy of being the last then it will never wear the Some Young Punks name”. So you can be assured that every bottle of their expressive wine will be as good as the last.
