Naming, identity and packaging designs for a family of exotic wine blends by the Australian winery, Belvidere. Based on the notion that a glass of delicious wine was an experience worth repeating, the bottles literally repeat themselves with lush, bespoke patterns created for each blend. The series was awarded four Gold medals for label design by the San Francisco International Wine Competition in 2013.

Aromas of plum and blackcurrant, with a hint of violet from the Petit Verdot. Medium-bodied, black fruits, black olives, subtle hints of briar and bramble, licorice and hints of vanillin oak. An interesting wine that will drink beautifully with game meats and rich sauces.” —winemaker

Winemaker Notes Aromas of plum & blackcurrant, w/ a hint of violet from the Petit Verdot.  Medium-bodied, black fruits, black olives, subtle hints of briar & bramble, licorice & hints of vanillin oak.

Australia Floral, fresh, & fruity, w/ juicy flavors of melons & apples.  Complemented w/ crisp citrus zest.  Soft-textured w/ a clean fresh finish.  Bright un-oaked style makes this wine fun to enjoy every day.  Great w/ both seafood & meat dishes.
