The Rude Mechanicals refers to a specific group of characters in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. These skilled labourers or craftsmen want to put on a play within this play. Similarly, every year Boutinot challenge some of their best Aussie producers to make something they might not usually make - a motley crew of talented and crafty winemakers given a chance to express themselves with something fun, different, exciting and a treat to drink... a small list of wines to sit within a bigger portfio list. Recent examples include a Viognier-Pinot Gris blend from South Australia and a fizzy Frontignac-Gewürz. Told you these wines were different! Each year the range evolves, so keep an eye out for future funky hybrids. 'Rude Mechanicals' isn't just a cool name for a band.
The Rude Mechanicals ‘Three Monkeys’ GSM wine is sensuous blend of Barossa classic. Warm plum and raspberry fruit on the nose with hints of rocky earth, spice and violets. Lovely and ripe, medium to full bodied with juicy plum and raspberry on the palate also, with black cherry, spice and a lick of creamy oak. It’s a generous juicy mouthful with bags of fruit and spice, a hint of tea, good acidity too, keeping it vibrant. It’s texture and minerality make it a crunchy accompaniment to the most epicurean barbie. Great with roast beef or lamb, as well as grilled meats and BBQs.
