Vulturedog Shiraz Tempranillo

The rare and mystical Vulturedog shared high intelligence with its distant canine cousins, but proved a little harder to domesticate due to its ability to fly. It had a voracious and annoying appetite for leftovers (hence the term ‘doggy bag’) but tragically became extinct just before the advent of road-kill, which would have seen it flourish in the modern environment.

Wine Press and Accolades

4/5 stars - Tony Love - The Advertiser – 01/06/2018

From a new “Dreamtime” series by the Hesketh group, which revels in its mad labelling of mixed-up animals. Others in the range including a Porcupotamus pinot noir/shiraz and a Hippocrcopig cabernet/mataro/aragonez (Portuguese synonym for tempranillp). The shiraz/tempranillo variation is the most familiar profile: rustic, bold, powerful, its fruit muscles meeting savoury more-ishness. As the label suggests: “Blending not only makes for more interesting creatures, it also makes better wine.”
