ALEXANDRIA, Australia - Five limited edition handcrafted, sassafras wood wine cabinets were made in celebration of the release of Taylors Wines' Pioneer Shiraz 2012 parcel.
Crafted by Australian furnituremaker and designer Andrew Bartlett, the five cabinets are sold retail for approximately $6,115, according to The Moodie Davitt Report, which describes the cabinets as having brass finishings and fixtures, a Spanish-made locking system and polished brass plates on the cabinet's side featuring Taylor’s seahorse emblem. Additional details include a wooden base and neck holder and a handmade kangaroo leather fastener.
