Odd Bins Artist Collab: limited edition art for limited edition wines

Thu Oct 04 05:44:00 UTC 2018

 

Four upcoming South African artists were commissioned by Checkers to create unique artworks to adorn the wine labels of the newest additions to its exclusive Odd Bins range.

The artists that form part of the first ever Odd Bins Artist Collab are Karabo Poppy Moletsane, Musonda Kabwe, Lauren Fowler and Rose Chaston.

Each artist was given a limited edition Odd Bins estate wine and asked to develop a unique design which encapsulates the specific varietal of that wine. The result: two of the finer things in life - wine and art - brought together in a limited edition bottle.

The following wines form part of the first ever Odd Bins Artist Collab:

 

Odd Bins 331 - 2018 Chardonnay

  • A vibrant, medium-bodied wine with aromatic notes of fresh kiwi and delicate peach

  • Origin: Paarl

 

Odd Bins 244 - 2018 Sauvignon Blanc

  • Full-flavoured with good depth on the nose and aromas of citrus and passion fruit

  • Origin: Coastal Region

 

Odd Bins 840 - 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

  • Well-rounded with a combination of dried fruit, berries and spices on the nose

  • Origin: Stellenbosch

 

Odd Bins 633 - 2016 Shiraz

  • Aromas of black cherry, truffle and black pepper with a velvety plum palate.

  • Origin: Cape South Coast

 

The Odd Bins Artist Collab wines will be available in Checkers, Checkers Hyper and Checkers LiquorShop stores across South Africa from end October 2018, just in time for the festive season.  

The limited edition label for Odd Bins was launched during First Thursdays in Cape Town on 4 October 2018.
