South Australian ‘Icon’ Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot 2013
Some would say that this Iconic female was the most beautiful woman to ever grace the big screen! She certainly was an iconic style queen and remains so to this day. Many famous females have tried to mimic her style and looks over the years but no one has ever come close to the original. She oozed style and her presence captivated men everywhere.
This Iconic figure was discovered by a fashion photographer as she was walking along Sunset Boulevard on a warm summer’s day in 1946. He was immediately captivated by her natural beauty and a photo shoot was quickly organized and her career as a pin up model took flight. A nude photo shoot for a calendar in 1949 made her a household name around the globe and started her on a journey as a stage performer, singer and ultimately to realize her dream of becoming the most famous actresses in the world.
Many people do not realize that this iconic figure was also an extremely intelligent individual and a humanitarian. The breadth of subjects found in more than 400 books of her library is a testament to her intelligence and wide range of interests which included literature, art, drama, biographies, poetry, history, theology, philosophy and physiology. She had a deep love for all people and animals particularly dogs.
Unfortunately she became a man’s prize and this led to her ultimate spiral into depression and an untimely death. She will be forever missed and beautiful in our eyes. It was easy finding an Iconic wine to match this iconic female figure and off course it had to have bubbles!! At her peak she was full of evanescence and zest for life just like this awesome 2013 South Australian Sparkling Icon Chardonnay Pinot.
