    Grin Folkish wine?

    Browsing my local supermarkets extensive winery, I came across this absolutely beautifully designed bottle of wine that immediately grasped my attention. Upon reading the label, a smirk found it's way to my lips and I placed the bottle into my basket, unaware of the smile that would reach my lips when I opened the bottle...

    Varietal:
    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Rootstock:
    Original Ungrafted

    "Chile is a true rarity in the wine world.
    Unique geographic & climatic forces
    have allowed it to remain one of the very
    few grape growing regions in the world
    where the original European Rootstocks
    survive
    , unaffected by phylloxra - the
    disease that forced grape growers
    worldwide to graft vines onto generic
    rootstocks. Chile's isolation, protected
    by the mighty Andes to the East, and the
    vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean to
    the West, insures that grape vines can
    remain on the original rootstock, in
    the purist form
    . These same geographic
    characteristic provide Chile's fertile
    central region with optimal climate &
    soil conditions
    to produce consistent
    and outstanding grapes each year. This
    Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted
    exclusively from grapes grown on the
    original, ungrafted root systems
    tended
    by our master Winemakers. This gives the
    wine it's pure rich fruit flavors and aromas.

    Root: 1
    [The original ungrafted]
    Cabernet Sauvignon
    Colchagua Valley, Chile 2004

    A rich red wine with black currant,
    cassis, and cherry flavors.

    Mmmm, that looks wonderful! Red wine is all I drink these days (well,apart from water, coffee etc. ).

    Can you imagine if the disciples had been a bit more business-savvy and bottled some of the stuff that Jesus made out of water, to pass it on down their jewish generations, how much would a bottle of that stuff cost in 2007?

    They'd be able to buy the world. Oh...

    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
