John Peart ‘Kimorn Painting IV’ 2013
This gorgeous Kimberly landscape by the late Australian artist John Peart, with colourful hillside shapes which reflects the multi layered vibrancy of the Georgetown Rosé. It is reminiscent of the fruity and efflorescent wine that comes from this small vineyard situated in the Cromwell Basin at Kawarau Gorge in Central Otago. The bottle was specially designed to echo the shapes of the hills and carry the theme of Peart’s painting into a unified work of art in its own right.
Cured salmon, wrapped melon.
