With a PhD under his belt, a couple of other brands to organize, you’d think Colin McBryde had enough things to think about. But no. Enter his newest small scale conquest VineMind, whilst Some Young Punks is collaborative, Vine Mind is 100% Clare Valley and a dive into its persona as a region.
VineMind is the brainchild of Jen Gardner and Colin McBryde. Whilst their other endeavors, Adelina and Some Young Punks, are still very much ongoing projects, VineMind was born out of the opportunity to source fruit from vineyards and make wines in quite an experimental fashion diametrically opposed to what they do for the family estate Adelina and the collaborative Some Young Punks. An exercise in exciting regional wines that stray somewhat from the norms of stoicism.
Colin was awarded the Young Gun of Wine award in 2009
