You Can Now Drink Wine Out Of A Bottle Designed By Toro Y Moi, And Enjoy A Custom Playlist While Doing It
Until now, listeners hoping to enjoy the music of Toro Y Moi with a nice burgundy or bordeaux wine had to rely on their own oenophilic knowledge to make the right choice. But now Chazwick Bundick, the man behind the band, has unveiled a new wine bottle featuring his own design--one that fits just right with his lush musical style. Bundick designed the first label in California wine company Frequency's new artist series, and the image features a few lighthearted swirls etched over a stately red rectangle pattern.
This sure-to-be-soon-christened "Toro Y Moi Wine" is a Rhone blend, and is described as "Syrah sourced from the sandy hillside of Vernas Vineyard blended with 15% Grenache from the warm climate of the Santa Ynez Valley, combines savory notes of saline, spicy white pepper and deep blueberry with supple texture and fresh acidity." (For those less hip to the language of wine tasting, suffice to say it's medium bodied and not too dry). Bottles bearing Bundick's design will begin shipping in the fall, so you'll have plenty of time to marinate over the brand new Toro Y Moi album What For? before popping the cork. Better yet, enjoy a custom playlist of grape-crushing tracks hand-picked by Bundick to commemorate his newly fermented venture. Listen to Toro Y Moi's special wine-friendly playlist below and stay tuned for an official OKP review of the good stuff once our bottle arrives.
