Irony? AC/DC lost Bon Scott after a night of heavy drinking in 1980. Fast forward to 2011 and we’re introduced to a licensed AC/DC branded series of wines from NSW producer Warburn Estate.
The initial line up includes the following varieties:
- “Back In Black” Shiraz,
- “Highway To Hell” Cabernet Sauvignon,
- “Hells Bells” Sauvignon Blanc
- “You Shook Me All Night Long” Moscato, and,
- “Thunderstruck” Chardonnay
Will this hail the beginning of a new era in rock-‘n-roll/vineyard crossover marketing? We’re thinking not, but at least the wine appears to be decent.
If you’re interested in AC/DC related wine, look out for them at Woolworths, Dan Murphy’s and BWS outlets near you. It almost goes without saying: be wary of any bottle marked ‘T.N.T’!
We’ll be reviewing the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon shortly – check back soon.
