Two worlds collided when our crew tasted this wine in episode 044.
Adelaide illustrator, Harry Slaghekke, did the artwork for Marauding Vintners’ range of wines and this one is Mr Noir.
This company maintains a lot of mystery around its grapes and blends, so Harry went with a Noir-styled mystery man.
The collision of w0rlds relates to the fact that Harry is also the illustrator who worked with Steve Davis to create his Baristador character for Baristador Coffee.
This wine, from the Fleurieu Peninsula, is rather light or translucent in colour, has a green stalkishness and subtle hints of fruit, and a dry finish.
Best consumed when watching a Humphrey Bogart movie.
Here’s looking at you, kid.
