Just last week, I bottled up the 2015 Roussanne, Rosè and Grenache Noir. New wines means new labels and the great thing about that is the "family" of labels can be soon unveiled.
As with the 2014 Syrah label, there is a strip at the bottom of each new label with a different snippet of an oil painting which was created specifically for my wine labels.
The artwork for the labels was painted by artist Christopher Shelton. Chris describes himself as an abstract expressionist that still understands how to visually explain the world we live in. He has been professionally exhibiting his oil paintings for over 25 years; and most importantly, Chris is a passionate artist and an avid fine wine drinker. I am delighted to have had Chris' artistic interpretation of my own winemaking passion and philosophy put into a beautiful visual piece which I will carry as the centrepiece of Alkimi labels into the future.
