Queensland company Sirromet Wines has released two Jetstar Gold Coast Titans-themed wines featuring the signature of co-captain Scott Prince to celebrate the first year of its partnership with the National Rugby League club.
The wines, which display distinctive bottle labels with the Titans logo and printed reproductions of Prince's signature, are a 2005 Commemorative Shiraz and a 2006 Commemorative Unwooded Chardonnay, both from 100% Queensland fruit.
Prince believes the wines will prove popular with the club's supporters, and will make ideal Christmas gifts.
"I've tried both these wines and they are perfect for barbecues, and when families and friends get together over the festive season," Prince said. "I'm sure we will see plenty of bottles in Christmas stockings — they are ideal gifts for our fans."
"I will be sending a couple of bottles myself to people I know at the (Brisbane) Broncos, just to remind them how we beat them at Suncorp (Stadium) this year."
The Titans-themed wines are on sale as packs of six or 12 bottles. The six-pack costs $90, and the 12-pack 180 ($15 a bottle in both packs). Sirromet owner and Gold Coast businessman Terry Morris said the Titans-themed 2005 Shiraz was aged in French and American oak for 12 months before bottling.
"The (2006) Unwooded Chardonnay is a popular wine style made to be consumed young, and shows lovely regional Queensland mineral influences," Morris said. "It's an excellent match with prawns and other seafood."
