The inspiration for the name of the wine and design of the labels was a trip to the Yale Center for British Art. An exhibit of Mary Delany’s work, a remarkable series of botanical collages that are beautifully crafted with hundreds of tiny pieces of cut paper was breathtaking. I am fortunate to have licensed a few of her collages and created these beautiful labels with her art as the primary focal point. Mary was 72 when she created these pieces in the late 1700’s.

The grapes for this wine were whole bunch pressed to tank. The juice was cold settled for 2 days at 10C. Fermented in 400 litre French barrels.

After fermentation the wine was left on the fine lees in 100% 4th fill wood barrels for 9 months.

Food pairing

Enjoy with sushi or salted caramel ice cream.
