Bottoms Up! Fifty Shades of Grey Can Now Be Savored in a Wine Glass

FiftyShadesRedSatinThere are two vintages: Red Satin and White Silk. These will be available on retail shelves next month, but for any would-be Christian Grey looking to ASAP impress their prospective Anastasia Steele, both shades of vino can be ordered online now.

From today’s announcement:

“Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, adding to the sensuality that pervades a number of scenes,” said author E L James. “I’ve always had a penchant for good wine, so combining two of my passions was a natural extension of the series.”

The Red Satin is a decadent blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah with flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice. White Silk is a delicate yet rich white blend of Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. White Silk’s flavors include floral aromatics of lychee and honey, tempered by flavors of crisp grapefruit, mineral and lush pear with a faint hint of butterscotch.

Maybe it’s just us, but in the Grey PR context, that last sentence sounds very sexy. The wines retail for $17.99 each.
