The Oddbins Take

Sherazade is the definitive story teller. Persian king Shahryar married a new virgin each day and beheaded the previous day's wife, so that she would have no chance to be unfaithful to him. He had killed 1,001 women by the time he was introduced to Sherazade. Sherazade agreed to spend a night with the king but like Baldrick she had a cunning plan. She told the king a thrilling story all through the night, stopping in the middle explaining they were out of time. The king spared her life that day to hear the end of the story. The 2nd night she started a story more thrilling than the last & continued this pattern for 1001 nights until Sherazade had no more stories, but the King now loved her and did not behead her. (No, no it's a love story and a wonderful framing devise for Arabian Nights, not a horrifying tale of misogyny.) Donnafugata Sherazade has only one story but it may be the best of all; a tale of fragrant notes of red plum and cherry, combined with light spicy scents, a palate of fleshy fruit, perfectly reflecting the bouquet revealing an extraordinary freshness. One truly for the ages!
