According to Stereoboard.com, MOTÖRHEAD have partnered with an Australian winery Distorted Beverages in order to launch a branded red wine for their fans in Oz.
The Chief of Distorted Beverages said, “when the opportunity came about to produce the most iconic of Australian wines, Shiraz; for the band I jumped up and grabbed it. Without knowing exactly how I would pull this small feat off, I set about contacting pretty much everyone I knew in the wine industry and started a voyage of discovery.”
The Motörhead Shiraz 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, 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.
