News arrives that Motorhead have shifted over 300,000 bottles of their Motorhead Shiraz in Sweden since it debuted in 2010. Okay, not really mega-interesting but I really wanted to pass on this cool photo of Lemmy with a bottle of Motorhead Shiraz.
Lemmy Kilmister, lead singer, bass player and founder of the band, puts it: “My advice is — approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything can happen.”
Sadly, for Motorhead fans in the UK, this wine seems to be only available in Sweden from the Systembolaget
Motorhead Shiraz, produced in Southeast Australia by Broken Back Winery, is described as having “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.”
This follows on from the successful launch of Motorhead Bastards Lager. Other metal bands with wine labels include Slayer, Kiss, Whitesnake and Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) launched Cabo Wabo Tequila. Take a look at more complete of celebrity wine projects.
