Picture-led, wordless labels have become somewhat of a trend in recent years, and why not? We often absorb a “feeling” much more easily from a picture than from a string of words, and in the case of this bottle, we can feel the emotional heritage of Julien’s wife Heidi, in her intricate Maori drawings. From butterflies to dragonflies, tigers to elephants, Heidi's drawings root these wines in the beauty of the natural world.
