04. Cancer— 2020 SOMOS 'Blanquito' Vermentino Blend


Crisp green apples, lemon, mineral notes and sea spray; a little brightness and a little haze.

Starts out bright, fresh and mouthwatering. The Vermentino and Cortese bring a waxy element to the mix, while the Chardonnay provides subtle structure and length. Many moods in a glass! A drop with serious drinkability, it’s the antidote to complex emotional burdens.

A wine to pair with the waxes and wanes of watery dispositions. Go out or stay in with this changeable drop. Great as an aperitif with oysters or… crab.

An intriguing blend of Vermentino (88%), Cortese (6%), Chardonnay (4%), Pinot Gris (2%). From vineyards across the Riverland and the Adelaide Hills. Fresh, textural, green apples and minerality, perfect for summer and seafood. Think Muscadet or Soave, easy drinking, approachable and fun.

Cancer, the romantic.

Shy, protective and sentimental. A gentle soul. Your hard outer shell endures, safeguarding the softness of your heart. You live in a world guided by your senses. Led by your intuition and your ability to feel. You are the romantic. 

Loyal and loving, you are the nurturer of the zodiac. Deeply sympathetic and kind to those in need. Ruled by the Moon, the planet of sensation, you are heavily influenced by emotion. Your softer side becomes you.

You are the most sensory and reflective of beings. Nostalgia belongs to Cancer. You have an incredible talent for recollection, and with such a powerful memory and such a vivid imagination, you have the ability to recreate any scenario from the past and feel it again in full force. 

There is a vulnerability in this. A fragility that craves the protection and comfort of home. You covet this place, or person, you call your own, gathering within it the things that mean the most to you. Mementos evoking sensation become your collection of calm and reassurance. This arrangement affords you a sense of security; a shelter from the storm.

The shadow side to feeling so deeply is the transience of your emotional cycles. The inconsistencies and contradictions. Prone to bouts of melancholia one minute, the next pure elation. Moods as changeable as the moon.

Dramatic, committed and sentimental, you inspire sensation in those around you.
