About the Piece
This image is a visual representation of the sensuous queen of Super Tuscans, the Merlot-based Masseto. The image shows the wine's baroque and extravagant nose with an almost overwhelming richness and hedonistic wildness that then, on the palate, seems to be expertly hewn down to concise, flowing contours, all of its power compressed into a refined close.
About Sarah Heller
Sarah Heller is an artist of mixed Asian and European descent living and working in Hong Kong. Drawing on her background as a Master of Wine, her work attempts to capture the subjective experience of tasting wine and explores the synthetic work of imagination required to recreate and share that experience. Her series titled Visual Tasting Notes focuses on individual wines and the pieces are meant to be read narratively from top to bottom, tracing the wine from initial impression to final aftertaste. Each one is a collage of hand painted, digitally painted and photographic fragments.
