Every now and then, you spy something on the Internet that makes you just WISH you had thought of it first…
In this instance, it’s the handiwork of the Canadian winemakers ‘Lost Inhibitions’ who appear to have the most literal range of wine labels imaginable. Now, wine has made us all feel many things as we drink it, but when the bottle is channelling your spirit animal, you know you’re in for a cracking glass or three…
Now, we love this… but it doesn’t seem to be available here. But fret not! South Australian’s might not be quite as gutter mouth as the Canadians, but we have our fair share of ‘creatively’ labelled wines to share a bottle and a snicker with your friends. Some names should exclusively be given as presents for your very best of friends… others should be given to your boss to see if they get the hint.
Anyway, in no particular order, it’s time to track down some of these:
Some Young Punks, Clare Valley
Naked On Roller Skates Shiraz/Mataro
Share It With… anyone who played it loose and breezy in the disco era. Maybe not Mum.
Quickie Sauvignon Blanc
Share It When… how long do you actually want this Tinder date to last?
Double Love Trouble Nebbiolo/Cabernet
Share It When… Have you double-booked yourself? Maybe everyone can have a sense of humour about it…
Whistler Wines, Barossa Valley
Thank God It’s Friday Shiraz
Share It When… There’s probably an appropriate day of the week.
WTF White Blend
Share It When… We feel like this should be kept in your office desk drawers, and drunk on the spot when the need arises.
Get In My Belly Grenache
Share It When… you want to make it awkward at family gatherings by introducing everyone to your red wine belly bump.
Alpha Box & Dice, McLaren Vale
Golden Mullet Fury Semillon x Riesling
Share It With… Warwick Capper is in town, or your mate makes a bad life decision at the hairdresser.
Tait Wines, Barossa Valley
The Ball Buster Red Blend
Share It With… We feel like anyone involved in a wedding may know someone who needs a bottle.
Kaesler Vineyard, Nurioopta
Old Bastard Shiraz
Share It With… Your old man, to remind him how much you love him.
Mollydooker Wines, McLaren Vale
The Carnival of Love
Share It When… You’ve arrived at the party, put your keys in the bowl like everyone else, and see where the night takes you.
Artwine Estate, Clare Valley
Wicked Stepmother Fiano
Share It With… You know who, on her birthday.
Leave Your Hat On Montepulciano
Share It When… There’s a glint in your Dad’s eye, and your Mum is happy to humour him. Actually, maybe let them share it together and leave the room.
D’Arenberg, McLaren Vale
The LoveGrass Shiraz
Share It When… You catch up with that friend
The Swinging Malaysian Shiraz
Share It When… you miss your overseas travels and enjoying the ‘nightlife’.
The Old Bloke & Three Young Blondes Shiraz Roussanne Viognier Marsanne
Share It When… When you catch up with your Uncle, who remains the black sheep of the family for certain reasons.
If you’re still after some more cheeky drops track down the Bitch Grenache (it’s no longer made in the Barossa) – it is well worth it!
Happy drinking folks!
