Some Young Punks The Squid's Fist Sangiovese Shiraz 2018


Comic book imagery and catchy titles may have grabbed your attention, but there’s nothing gimmicky about this wine. It’s red fruited, slightly floral and medium bodied. It offers spice owing to the Shiraz, as well as the satisfying, gentle grip of Sangiovese tannin. This is new wave Australian wine, expressing restraint and structure, rather than overt, sun-drenched ripeness.

The team at Some Young Punks never make the same wine twice, sourcing fruit from different vineyards around South Australia. Despite their avant-garde approach, there is consistency and great value to be found in the wines they produce.
