Australian wine brand with a conscience – The Hidden Sea – is releasing a limited-edition, co-branded bottle of their 2018 Friends of Friends wine, to be included in a special 6-pack offer, just in time for Christmas.
A shiraz cabernet blend, this premium wine has historically been reserved for friends, family, and friends of friends of The Hidden Sea, and for the first time in recent years, is being made available for consumers to purchase for a limited time only as part of the Christmas pack.
In 2015, the winemakers at The Hidden Sea were given an unlimited production budget, sourcing a tonne of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Limestone Coast region for AUD$20,000 – more than anyone has ever spent on premium grapes in Australia.
This has allowed them to create a luxurious, wonderfully aromatic varietal consisting of juicy black cherry and blackberry flavours with hints of cacao and toasty spices.
Brick red with bright edges, it pairs perfectly with red meat, spiced pork belly and grilled autumn vegetables.
The label has been designed by Canadian fine artist and illustrator, Gary Taxali, who is known for his iconic retro style pop art and illustrations.
The sleek black bottle, wine capsule and wax-dipped cork exude quiet confidence and understated luxury, with each bottle number stamped on the front to add that distinctive, limited-edition touch.
The 6-pack offer includes: 1 x bottle of Friends of Friends 1 x bottle of GSM 1 x bottle of Pinot Noir 1 x bottle of Rosé 1 x bottle of Sauvignon Blanc 1 x bottle of Pinot Grigio RRP: AUD$150.00 To top it off, every purchase of this special 6-pack is an entry to win a 6L bottle of Friends of Friends that will make the winner the toast of the town at their Christmas event! (Winner announced 15 December).
As always, with every sale of their 6-packs, The Hidden Sea works with the ReSea Project to remove and recycle 60 single-use plastic bottles from the world’s oceans.
Since July 2020, the brand has removed over 7.5 million plastic bottles from the ocean, bringing them closer to their ambitious goal of removing 1 billion plastic bottles by 2030.
