$22 from Cloudwine. Some Young Punks‘ Colin McBryde is unmissable with his tattoos. University of Adelaide friends and business partners Jennie Gardner and Nic Bourke might lack the ink but are as academically qualified and passionate about winemaking. Their choice of labels are just as eye-catching, especially those depicting the exploits of Trixie and Tessa Love. Can’t remember when I was last in trouble with a double, but I cracked this Trouble Double last week and it was lip-smackingly delicious! This blend of 65% Nebbiolo and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon exudes a deep crimson colour, slight purple tinge. Lovely youthful aromatics of blackberries, raspberry, hot red earth with bramble-like undertones. On the palate, rich fruit kept fresh with spine-tingling acidity. Fine, grippy tannins hold the blackberry, raspberry and yellow plum fruit all the way through on the broad mid-palate feel to the finish. This matched the sweet plum sauce of Peking duck very well, but I reckon some HK roast duck might be a winning combination. Drink now – 2020. 92.
