The Liberator Episode 34 New Blood and Chocolate Cabernet Sauvignon - Shiraz
Rick’s a long-standing Elvis fan. That’s Elvis Costello, of course.
The title for Episode 22 ‘Blood and Chocolate’, was inspired by Costello’s 1986 album. It’s an album bursting with anger, full of frustration and resentment, delivered with passion. His songs are about obsessive love and infidelity; nowhere more potently than in the track I want You.
The wine itself was a mature parcel from the 2003 vintage sourced from Nederburg in Paarl. When this similar parcel presented itself early in 2021, Rick decided it would make a suitable sequel to the original release, hence the addition of ‘new’ to the title. The addition of the roses to the label, should appeal to all lovers of Cadbury’s. 61% Cabernet and 31% Shiraz, not dissimilar to some of the might South Australian Cab Shiraz blends of yesteryear!
