Finland's NIGHTWISH have checked in with the following update:
"Our friends from Wine&Roll in the UK had a tasting with our Imaginaerum Ribera del Duero wine. Read their almost poetic tasting notes here. For availability and other information about our wine, please visit NightwishWine.com."
An excerpt from the review:
"Every wine has an occupation. This one is a Hunter. Now let the hunt begin...it won't be an easy catch.
It's a bit harsh after opening, so don't start to drink immediately, leave it to breath for a while. You have to wait like a Hunter is waiting for his Victim. Wait calmly, show some respect, it's worth it... It has a beautiful ruby red colour, like freshly drawn blood. Swirl it around your glass and have a sniff. You'll find wood from the oak-barrel where the wine spent months for ageing, sweet cherry and plum, spices of the magical world and something else, something extraordinary. This wine has a story."
Nightwish mainman/keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen recently stated: "We are proud to present a new Nightwish item, Imaginaerum wine. Imaginaerum is the most imaginative wine on the planet. It’s inspired by otherworldly splendours, moments of wonderment and the joyous sound of laughter with a hint of campfire poetry, music of the spheres, and the long, smooth, star-filled finish of Lucid Dreams. It is a wine best enjoyed with the ones you hold dear. Cheers and enjoy!"
Imaginaerum wine is sourced from some of the most prestigious vineyards in central Spain. Its grapes originate from vines that are up to 100 years old and are growing at high altitudes in stony gravel soils. Old vines, almost no water and poor soils have resulted in a ridiculously low yields but grapes with super intensive aromas. Before bottling, the wine has spent 14 months in small barrels made of French oak.
The label of the bottle is based on the song 'The Crow, The Owl And The Dove' from the Imaginaerum album. The mystery of the bird emblem will be revealed to anyone listening to the song with thought and a glass of Imaginaerum…
