“Fashion changes – style endures.” - Coco Chanel

Introducing a delightful wine with a design inspired by ‘Coco’ Chanel from the 1930s. @Cornershop Design designed this stunning wine to add to Teusner Wines impressive collection.

“Teusner are respected boutique producers based in Barossa Valley, South Australia. Back in 2011, winemaker Kym Teusner impulsively bought a small parcel of Semillon from an 80 year old vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Despite its unpopularity and the fact that the region’s stocks of the old vine varietal continue to dwindle, Kym appreciates its provenance, impressive qualities and unquestionable style.”

Kym mentions, “Time has proven Semillon to be the only white variety grown in the Barossa Valley capable of producing a world class wine. And whilst many times over the years other eminently more popular varieties have been planted in the dry Barossa Valley soils, none have produced a wine of excellence, and none have endured.”

Looking elegant and luxurious, but simply stated, Gabrielle Old Vine Semillon incorporates its inspiration subtly. Embossed dots that resemble a necklace and art deco design pulled from the 30s (the time at which Semillon Vineyard was planted) appear stylish and sophisticated. The neck of the bottle and its cap are black, establishing an even more polished look.

“It is the epitome of simplicity and elegance. Label features include modern typography reminiscent of the era, gold embellishments and a tactile, gloss varnished pattern inspired by Art Deco design and Chanel’s trademark pearl necklace.”
