Zombie Themed Wine?

Wow! I've come across some pretty cool zombie related items but this one takes the cake. The only information I can find on this is through the website of the wine bottle's label designer, Mash. Which, by the way, totally makes the wine worth the purchase. It's a plain bottle with the top dipped in red wax and allowed to rund down the bottle (very cool). Then, there's a piece of twine tied to the bottle that has a type of crime scene folder containing pictures and text of some sort. A very neat, clean, and ominous look.

And just when you thought this bottle of wine could not get any cooler... it's appropriately called Night of the Living Red. Made by Redheads Studio of McLaren Vale, I can find no further information about this wine. Check for yourself, but Redheads Studio's website is down.

So, my friends, we'll have to add this one to the list of things to look for in future updates. Until then, drool over the pictures:

I'll leave you with the information provided by the Mash website:

Mash has been involved with a variety
of packaging and branding projects with
Redheads Studio of McLaren Vale. At the
top end of their fine wines is the ‘Return
of the Living Red’. Packaging needed the
usual unique Redheads touch. As this wine
is non-vintage it has no age (the 2 grape
varieties coming from different vintages).
This was a complex fine wine with no listed
age; a mysterious and intriguing wine. To
compliment this the nature of the product,
Mash developed a concept to create a small
pack containing missing and/or suppressed
crime files implying the existence of the
living dead in and around the vineyards.
With use of disturbing illustrations and
fascinating old photos on a toothy uncoated
paper the concept was bought to life. A slip
knot with old twine and a deep red wax
dipped bottle went with the old crime file
folder to create one of our favorite wine
packaging pieces.
