If you follow fashion and trends then you have no doubt been drinking lighter, fresher reds with elegance and red fruit flavours. You are no doubt wearing a jacket with a padded triangular shaped shoulder or the latest “Revisted” ripped, stained, or painted denim. Fun whilst it lasts and hilarious in a few years when the picture pops up on Facebook memories but some things just don’t go out of fashion.
