method traditional and robust red wine inhabiting the same glass seems to leave the rest of the world a little confused. "you do what with what!??!! here in australia its one of our favourite gurgles. although it's traditionally made with shiraz there are a few mavericks like myself out there who like it a little different.

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 2022 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 Pants Dropping Boozyness for that Big Kid Good Time... If you can’t discover your Inner Crazy on this Adults Only Hyper Juice, you’d better check you still have a heartbeat.
Cheers and Enjoy!
