Adventure Edition The Pirate
A collaboration between NFT collector BrownWorkGlov3 and BoundbyWine
The Pirate is our unique limited edition character in this wine adventure, and he never fails to bring a whimsical factor whenever he goes to explore the universe of wines. Mr Hook wore long linen sleeves covered with a rugged yet apt jacket, then paired with his peg leg a cavalier boot on his left. Before heading for his wine journey, he brings along his pet dog, his dearest companion. He is not afraid of any adventures. He wonders through different universes to explore wines and the meaning of life as he glows green like a phantom himself.
Jacket Boy is our main protagonist in this wine adventure, and he never fails to look good whenever he goes to explore the universe of wines. His favorite go-to outfit is his ABD white long sleeves with a tie, covered with a pleasant sky-colored jacket shirt paired with selvage Prussian pants. To keep things a little more casual, he would put on his pastel pink cap, with the top visor facing forward and tilted at 30 degrees.
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.
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.
