Like a 32 waist in a fat man store, Misfits Wine Co. doesn't seem to fit in. At the heart of this outfit are 3 unexpected wine souls, all about the produce, not about conforming to the current ideology of the 'wine selling set.' Chris Columbus wanna-be's are in business; Misfits is a part of a whole new winemaking culture ready to be discovered. Misfits Productions rejects convention, doing whatever it takes to make the best product possible.
This collection of wines really doesn’t fit in anywhere. The labels? WTF! The blends? See aforementioned exclamation. What does fit is wild diversity and ultimately high quality. These wines will make every guest at a dinner party remember every sip of wine and certainly the labels. Offensive? Who cares!
This is a classic blend…hah. Really nothing classic about the blend. A Rhône varietal and a Bordeaux varietal?
Certainly. It wasn’t that long ago that Syrah (Hermitage) was sneaking itself into Bordeaux as the Bordelaise had a love affinity for Syrah. Swap a few barrels and accidently do some blending! Fast forward to modern day Australia though and you have scantily clad ladies running away from a crazed biker gang. Malbec and Shiraz is just the beginning of the madness. The story on the back label does much better justice.
Inky ruby. Ripe cherry, musky herbs, candied flowers and woodsmoke on the fragrant nose. Juicy and supple in the mouth, offering concentrated dark fruit and cola flavors that are lifted and sharpened by a peppery nuance. Closes with very good clarity, smooth tannins and a refreshing touch of bitterness. Nicely structured and taut for an Australian red wine at this price point. - Winery
