Motorhead Shiraz wine sells 300,000 bottles

Motorhead’s signature wine, Motorhead Shiraz, remains the top-selling rock wine.

The heavy metal legends have announced that they have sold more than 300,000 bottles of their red wine, which was launched last year.

“The wine reflects Motörhead’s spirit,” says drummer Mikkey Dee. “Like the band, this wine is rock hard on the outside, but dark and intriguing on the inside.”

From Australia, Motorhead Shiraz 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.

Enjoy Motörhead Shiraz with dishes like grilled lamb chops with garlic and rosemary; it also goes well with other lamb or beef dishes, as well as pasta and flavoursome cheeses.

Serve the wine a little below room temperature, around 16 – 18°C.
