The Oddbins Take

Some consider collages an art form reserved for teenagers letting the rest of their bedroom know how many friends they have or for people writing ransom notes out of cut up copies of 'Take a Break' magazine. (What, just because he kidnaps people he can't engage in some guilty pleasure reading?) We would tell people disregarding collages to have a peak at the work of Pablo Picasso during his Synthetic Cubism phase. Pretty good right?


Collages are amazing; they are a visual expression of the phrase, 'more than the sum of its parts.' It is an art form that Californian winemaker Dave Phinney has mastered. For Orin Swift Abstract he blends Grenache, Syrah & Petite Syrah from 100 different lots of wine. Individually, they're good wines, but together, they tell a full, complex story of raspberries, cranberries, dark plums, pluots and a hint of earthiness; just like a collage hence why one adorns the bottle. There you have it; collages good, kidnapping bad. Glad we cleared that up.
