M&S RELEASES WINE WITH ADULT COLOURING-IN LABEL
Daisy Fletcher’s design on a bottle of £8 Chilean Sauvignon Blanc
The high street retailer worked with Royal Academy of Art graduate and illustrator Daisy Fletcher on the design, which is featured on a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc.
Called Colour Me Sauvignon Blanc, consumers are being encouraged to colour in the plain label having drunk the bottle, and then post an image on social media using the #colourmewines for the chance to win a magnum of Prosecco.
Writing to her Instagram page, Fletcher said: “They approached me a few months ago with the idea of creating a label which could be coloured in to go with a carefully chosen wine, great for sharing with friends.” The Chilean wine, priced at £8, is described as ‘crisp, fruity and fresh’ with top notes of gooseberry, lime and passion fruit, and will hit the shelves this week.
The trend for adult colouring books began in 2014. It’s said to be a helpful tool to relax and be present, with a calming affect similar to yoga or meditation.
Chile has a registered a new noble grape variety, have you heard of it!? It's called San Francisco and it was recognized as a grape variety that arrived to Chile with the Spanish conquerors. Of course I had to taste it, so I tried Negra from @maturana_wines . Although the day was not sunny, trying this wine at the beach was a great experience, the color was a beautiful color between purple and ruby. I had expected an even darker color, because the wine is called Negra= black. In nose the wine was not very expressive with hints of aromas of sweet plum. However, in taste it was an explosion of fruit, fresh cherries 🍒, raspberries and blackberries. .

🇨🇱🍷Pra fechar o feriadão prolongado, vamos de chileno.
O escolhido foi o Carmenere Tierra Alta. Produzido pela Valdorella, gigante grupo produtor de vinhos italiano, expandiu seus horizontes e há pouco tempo abriu uma vinícola no Chile.
Caracterizado como um vinho muito fácil de se beber, acidez e fruta na medida, sem aquele pimentão verde enjoativo que geralmente encontramos na Carmenere.
Este é um tinto para quem busca algo mais despretensioso, sem um corpo pesado e com belo drinkability para o dia a dia.
