Read about Some Young Punks
Col McBryde and Jen Gardner (of Adelina Wines) got together with good friend Nic Bourke in 2006 to establish the Some Young Punks label. The first release, Passion has Red Lips, had a label based on an early 1900s Pulp Fiction novel. It was one of the most striking labels we’d seen for some time. The second release was a Barbera labelled Naked on Roller Skates. The new labels Monster’s Attack, Squid’s Fist, Quickie etc. are as eye-catching as ever. Despite the humour and fun reflected by these labels, the Adelina team is deadly serious when it comes to their wines. The small scale production is traditional and minimalist with hand-picking in small lots, indigenous yeast fermentations, basket pressing and no filtration. The Punks (aka Col, Jen & Nic) source fruit from all over South Australia and the wine is made principally at the Adelina winery. This is a producer well worth following!
