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
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
Odd Bins 633 - 2016 Shiraz
Aromas of black cherry, truffle and black pepper with a velvety plum palate.
Origin: Cape South Coast
