Fat Bastard Shiraz '04

Remarkably full bodied. The origin of the Fat Bastard. Good friends Theirry (renowned French winemaker) & Guy (British wine industry rebel) created Fat Bastard almost by accident. It started out as an experiment Thierry had been doing in the back of his cellar, leaving a barrel on the lees (yeast cells). He didn't know what to expect, but when the friends tried the wine Thierry exclaimed: Now zat iz what you call eh Phet bast-ard! (read with a strong French accent). This very British expression perfectly described the wine's wonderful color and round, rich palate so that's what they called it. No one remembers exactly where the hippo came from. Alc. 13% by vol.
