Adventure Edition Cabernet Girl
A collaboration between NFT collector BrownWorkGlov3 and BoundbyWine
The Cabernet Girl is our second character in this wine adventure with the Jacket Boy. Her passion lies in dressing up finely and indulging herself with some fine reds where Cabernet Sauvignon varietals are among her favourites. That’s where she gets her rightful name as the Cab girl. Like the Jacket Boy, she always looks stylish whenever she explores the universe of wines. Her favourite go-to outfit is her khaki sweater, covered with a matching mid-sixties-looking double-breast blazer paired with selvedge white pants. She would put on her blush pink flats to keep things perfect while grabbing her groceries to pair with her wines.
She has a gift for matching her sensitive taste buds with the wines she drinks. For instance, she usually pairs her solid-bodied red with some hot baguette for a start, where the main would be some lovely smoked ribs or a hearty oxtail stew, which are the perfect matches for her. All that said, Cab Girl was born as Ivy Girl #4503, minted onto the blockchain where each of him was born by the strokes of Aaron Chang.
About the Wine
Grape Varietals & Region: Aurora Chateau Aurora a joyous marriage of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. The fruit comes from vineyards planted on terraces at 850 metres altitude in the village Auora on the mountains of North Batroun, Lebanon. The vineyards use eco-friendly farming techniques (dry farming, organic cattle fertilisers) and have typically clay and limestone soils. The terroir experience moderate four seasons that offer adequate rainfall to the vines, and the terraces help to retain rainwater and avoid landslides on this mountainous vineyard. Grape clusters are controlled to carry limited yields per vine to provide optimal juice concentration.
Taste Profile: Dense purple colour. Vivid aromas of blackberries, blueberries and plums along with hints of mocha, vanilla and cocoa powder. The medium to full-bodied palate shows velvety tannins and complexity with cassis flavours complemented by notes of mint on the long finish.
Winemaking Process: Careful handpicking of the fruit in the beginning of September usually at dawn and dusk to make sure the grapes are cool upon arrival at the winery. De-stemming and fermentation at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks until initial fermentation is complete. The wine ages for 12 months in French oak barrels (30% new) and a small portion of American oak barrels.
