Sarah Heller MW is a wine expert, visual artist and Asia-Pacific’s youngest Master of Wine. In 2018, she began the Visual Tasting Note art series as an innovative way to describe the wine tasting experience. “As a Master of Wine and artist, I've always found a natural affinity between wine and visual art. Both can trigger sensations and emotions hard to communicate with words.”

Sarah’s visual tasting notes are digital collages in which both the body and structure (acids, tannins) of the wine as well as the aroma, color, and taste components come together harmoniously. The outline represents the "shape" of the wine. As we were intrigued by this unique and innovative perspective on describing wine, we have asked Sarah to taste and describe one of our wines monthly.

The wine of this month is Laurent Ponsot, Corton Charlemagne 'Cuvée du Kalimeris' 2017- "a hint of marzipan, butter pastry and a dash of wisteria; texture is almost oily but the acidity quickly bursts through, cleansing all the way through to the chalky, dry finish. Very fine and cleanly orchestrated".

Every season, Sarah tastes one of our wines, which will also be our Wine of the Season, and create a visual tasting note for us.
