Ripe red fruit and some savory earthy notes. Rich and opulent this wine has a luscious mouthfeel.
The Punks (aka Col, Jen & Nic) source fruit from all over South Australia and the wine is made principally at the Adelina winery. Turn, splash and savour. Unfiltered confessions follow as the sin glows red and passionate like those lips. The Shiraz gives warmth and roundness of flavour, while the Cabernet Sauvignon with its blackcurrent fruit lends elegance. Complex aromas of red and black berries, pungent herbs, and fresh flowers with juicy plumb and cassis flavours with a hint of mint and spice on the palate. Passion is blend of roughly a 50/50 blend between the grapes with all fruit now sourced from McLaren Vale.
Where this wine comes from - McLaren Vale
Just south of Adelaide in South Australia, McLaren Vale is a red wine drinker’s haven, producing rich, velvety textured reds the state is known for. Looking over St Vincent Gulf, the maritime influence in McLaren Vale helps to keep summer temperatures down while the steady temperatures are perfect for producing balanced reds that are certainly easy on the palate. In a similar vein to the Barossa, McLaren Vale hangs its hat on Shiraz, but similarly, Grenache and Mourvèdre play a strong supporting role – perhaps outshining the star of the show on occasion! Certainly its GSM blends deserve recognition, producing seamless wines. Enjoying its Mediterranean climate, it comes as no surprise that the wines of McLaren Vale are perfect with hearty Italian dishes – ragout, pizza, or an antipasto platter – you can’t go wrong.
