The Lyrics

butt: a wine barrel; must: juice of grapes during fermentation; sur lees: the practice of letting the wine rest for a period on some or all portions of the yeasts and solids that have precipitated out during fermentation; cru: The phrase "grand cru" carries a deep resonance in French wine culture. Literally, it means "great vineyard."
When some butt must in glass I swirl
Before it's bottled,
I swill freely.
It will be earthy
With fruit tones rich,
It is destined to be

Case Syrah, Syrah,
Each box will have 9 plus 3
Bottles of nectar sur lees,
Case Syrah, Syrah,
Box with 9 plus 3,

This cru-created must I love,
It isn't sweet-tart,
The fruit's forward.
Its style is Bordeaux,
Strained from the grapes.
Sometimes it's used for blends.


It has had "children"; it's been cloned.
Down in Australia,
Is slightly different,
"Shiraz" its nick-
name, tender some to me.

Case Shiraz, Shiraz--
The case discount is 20
Percent; sometimes just 15.
Case Syrah, Shiraz--
Screw orthography!
It tastes heavenly!

Good play on words. Have you tried Little Boomy?
