MOTÖRHEAD Shift Over 300,000 Bottles Of Shiraz
October 22, 2012, 2 years ago
The MOTÖRHEAD Shiraz, released earlier this summer in North America, the wine sold and distributed by Douggan's Distillers, sells better than ELVIS, and remains unbeatable as the top-selling rock wine. The heavy metal legends have sold more than 300,000 bottles of their red wine.
“The wine reflects Motörhead’s spirit. Like the band, this wine is rock hard on the outside, but dark and intriguing on the inside,” says Mikkey Dee.
This rockin' Shiraz named after the legendary British icons, hails from Australia's Broken Back Winery and has a very fruity aroma with flavours of vanilla, blackberries, plums, eucalyptus and liquorice. It is full-bodied with soft rounded tannins and packs a real punch.
Motörhead mainman Lemmy Kilmister says "approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything could happen."
Enjoy Motörhead Shiraz with dishes like grilled lamb chops with garlic and rosemary. Also goes well with other lamb or beef dishes, as well as pasta and flavoursome cheeses.
Lemmy adds that the optimum temperature is 16 - 18°C - fractionally cooler than most red wines.
