method traditional and robust red wine inhabiting the same glass seems to leave the rest of the world a little confused.

Young or old, sometimes we just need to get a bit crazy. As an Aussie kid this was often the result of too much red cordial. The combination of the red raspberry colour and plenty of sweet, sweet sugar would pull the pins of the behavioural grenades. Raucous naughtiness and a boot up the arse was of course the result. Fast forward a bit, adulthood settles in and somehow, we come to believe we’re above such silliness... YEH RIGHT!!
Let me introduce you to the 2018 david Franz VP Crazy. It’s my adult equivalent of that childhood hyper juice. Lovingly crafted from rich ripe Barossa Shiraz it’s got heaps of that vibrant red colour, bonkers amount of Shirazy fructose and the best bit, a hefty slug of 25-year-old Brandy Spirited Alcoholic Awesomeness from the cellars of Tarac. If you can’t discover your Inner Crazy on this Adults Only Hyper Juice, you’d better check you still have a heartbeat.
