Don't know about arty, but I can tell you is is beautifully juicy!! It certainly appeals to me.
In a past life I have been a fruit juice engineer, I even wrote my ME thesis about it (not a joke, it was electro mechanical engineering Smile but I wanted a practical thing to do) I can ASSURE you that this would have made a red fruit mix label.
