With a PhD under his belt, a couple of other brands to organise, you'd think Colin McBride (Adelina ans Some Young Punks) had enough things to think about. But no. Enter his newest small scale conquest Vine Mind, whilst Some Young Punks is collaborative, Vine Mind is 100% Clare Valley and a dive into its persona as a region.
Grapes are handpicked, pressed in whole bunches and fermentation and maturation takes place in concrete.
Florals like daisies, lime, musk, a hint of salted caramel and a high tone pinch of lavendar. Waves of basalt float across the palate. Kiwifruit through to quince sit in the background to crisp fuji apples. A poignant finish of acid verve is balanced with a hinted generosity of that same caramel.
