About The Wine and Icon:
The Iconic figure we have chosen for this beautiful Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020 was Australia’s ultimate rock and roller. He was the front man of a band that is now one of the biggest rock bands in music history. Their name sits comfortably amongst other such rock royalty including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Queen.
The band and this Iconic front man cut their teeth in the crowded beer barns of Australia in the 70’s. They did the hard yards of pub rock covered in blood, sweat and beer to produce a unique guitar driven sound with unique but simple guitar riffs and guttural screams attached to lyric’s so easily penned by this Iconic urban poet. He was a wild man and lived live to the full; he took all his passions and vices to the limit which ultimately led to his untimely death just as the band was becoming an international success. As they say only the good die young!
It was an easy to fit to match the Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020 with this iconic singer. He had a strong connection with South Australia throughout the early 1970’s. He lived in the Adelaide Hills in a share house and was known to be very fond of the big red wines from the region. It was his time in South Australia that gave him his love and appreciation of South Australian red wines in particular.
He would have loved this Barossa Valley Shiraz 2020 as just like him it is balsy, in your face smooth and cheeky. The fruit flavours don’t dominate; they just sit back and let you enjoy the smooth tannins and elegant finish. Just like our Icon you can sit back and enjoy his simple but elegant explanations of life in his lyrics. No strings attached to either this wine or the Icon.
We have been left with his undeniable mark on one of the world’s greatest bands and his magnificent street poet lyrics and songs that have stood the test of time. Sit back with his music blasting out of the speakers and enjoy both the music and this Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020.
Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:
I could not think of a better Iconic figure to attach to this Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020! I have loved the band and this man all my life and I have read many books about his upbringing in Western Australia and also later in South Australia. When we were thinking of what wine we could match him to, this Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020 was the perfect fit. It has a medium to full bodied flavor profile of black berries and forest fruits. It is not your over the top, fruit driven Shiraz that is typical of those from the Barossa. It has a more simple elegant style with a smooth finish and soft easy drinking tannins. I hope you enjoy it whilst listening to this Icon belting out his signature tunes. Score 93/100 Gold Medal.
