About The Icon:
There was only one Iconic figure that sprang to mind when we tasted this wine… She claimed the blues, soul, gospel, country and rock with unquestionable authority and verve, fearlessly inhabiting psychedelic guitar jams, back-porch roots and everything in between. Her volcanic performances left audiences stunned and speechless, while her sexual magnetism, world-wise demeanour and flamboyant style shattered every stereotype about female artists – and essentially invented the “rock mama” paradigm.
Her recordings and filmed performances have cemented her status as an icon, inspiring countless imitators and musical devotees. Myriad hit collections, live anthologies and other repackaged releases have kept her legend alive,
This Icon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and posthumously given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. But such honors only made official what rock fans already knew: that she was among the greatest, most powerful singers the form had ever known – and that she’d opened the door for countless artists across the musical spectrum. Unfortunately she was taken from us way to soon at the tender age of 27 years. She packed alot in those 27 years!
This Adelaide Hills Icon Sauvignon Blanc 2015 is the perfect fit for this Iconic figure. The winemaker has used some fantastic techniques to produce a unique wine with an equally unique flavour profile. Innovative, expressive and magical… just like our Icon on the label.
