Passion Has Red Lips is a Cabernet / Shiraz blend made by the Some Young Punks who epitomise the best of New Australia. The punks consist of Col McBryde (voted Australia’s Young Gun Winemaker of the Year), Jen Gardner (self confessed nerdy yeast expert) and thirdly Nic Bourke. Like most amongst the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren’t moved by porty Shiraz and seeks instead a sense of place and restraint the wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and the New. Col McBryde is as unimpressed by flash-in-the-pan medal-winners that are short on provenance as he is by being hide-bound to the Old World, and carves his own niche. Yet being media savvy and having a sense of humour allows this ironically quietly-spoken but earnest bunch to market themselves outrageously and to bring a fresh approach to labelling. The image on the label is directly from a classic pulp fiction novel entitled Sin on Wheels and fits perfectly with their other labels such as Naked On Roller Skates and Quickie.
