Motorhead Shiraz

On VH1 Classic's That Metal Show they introduced a product called Motorhead Shiraz, a red wine from the Band Motorhead. If a Venn Diagram was made a red wine drinker and a Motorhead fan, I suspect that intersecting point would be rather small. I've always associated that band with whiskey, beer, and amphetimines. I wonder if that wine would rate above 80 in Wine Spectators rating system, (which is kind of low.) I have a feeling very few people out there has tried this product, or have any other experiences with other novelty products, (like Three Stooges Beer.)

    Maybe metal heads' tastes have been evolving, you know, as we mature.

    1. Upon further research, I found out that it's made by Brocken Back wineries in Southeast Australia. A Swedish wine blogger gave it a C, (average) rating. Wine Spectator had an article
      on it but did not rate the Heavy Metal Shiraz.
