Blue Boy is named in honour of our forgetful winemaker, famous for his blue denim shirts and grumpy demeanour. Pumped up Shiraz is a creation of his folly.
One harvest a mysterious batch of concentrated, intense Shiraz grapes turned up at the winery. Our cheeky winemaker Blue Boy boldly claimed that he had deliberately left the grapes to over-ripen following the famous Italian technique of ‘Appassimento’. In reality he had simply forgotten to pick them!
Either way, the results were magnificent and Blue Boy’s Pumped Up Shiraz was born. Intense flavours of plum, chocolate and sweet spices over rich, velvety tannins make this a winning wine. Sometimes a little forgetfulness can go a long way!
