Jansz Tasmania has released the this season’s version of its Premium Cuvée gift boxes in the lead up to Christmas.
The sparkling house has partnered with Tasmanian artist, Daniel Gray-Barnett, to commission a bespoke piece of art that will appear on all of the gift boxes this season. The art is titled Our Breath, Our Song, and is inspired by the “majesty and mythology” of the Bass Strait. Through the colourful and energetic abstract illustrations, Gray-Barnett’s work explores the flow of time, people and nature that shapes not only the Jansz vineyards, but all of the land around us.
Describing his work and artistic process, Gray-Barnett said: “I drew inspiration from the Tasmanian landscape and in particular, the Pipers River region where the Jansz Vineyard makes its home.
“The river seemed like a really fitting symbol to base the artwork around and tie in elements that make the area and Tasmania so special.
“Our Breath, Our Song is about our changing relationship with Tasmania, its flora and fauna and the flow of air, water, time and people. I think it’s also unexpectedly vibrant – Tasmania is usually considered low-key and understated, but is actually bursting with creativity and life.”
This is the third iteration of the Jansz Tasmanian Seasonal Release, after the brand worked with other local artists, Eloise Lark and Jamin, to tell stories through art on previous releases.
“Jansz is such a uniquely iconic Tasmanian brand. Not only is it a favourite in our house, but it’s a perfect representation of what I love about Tasmanian creativity – organic, an appreciation for craft and a respect for old ways,” Gray-Barnett added.
The limited edition packaging for the Jansz Tasmania Premium Cuvée gift boxes will be available up until Christmas. In previous years, this has proved quite the success for the brand, with sales growing year on year during sparkling wine’s peak sales period.
