What do you think of this label?
I actually think it's ok. Apart from looking like it has been designed by a flute-obsessed eight year old girl desperately trying to impress her hippy parents and disregards all the basic tenets of label design such as clarity of name, I think it works somehow.
Grapes, vine leaves, sun, errrr...flautist... - all reasonable things to have on a label. If you've got it, flaut it, as James Galway used to say.
Luckily, the wine is delicious. Very pretty colour, lifted aromas of strawberry, clean fruit, fresh acidity and very nice finish, it is one of the nicest roses I have tasted in a long time.
On offer at €11.
Oh yes, the girl's parents will be happy to note that it is organic as well.
