Upside Wine

02. Taurus— 2019 UPSIDE WINE ‘Dead Mullet Blanc’ Chardonnay


The generosity of Taurus epitomised by this lavish, macerated, Margaret River Chardonnay.

On the palate this wine shows a rich indulgence of fruit, creamy texture and full acid, giving a full bodied mouth feel with tactile complexity. Notes of toffee apple, caramel, pastry and lemon curd reflect a slow sensuality. Blanc is broad and bountiful. 

This warming drop is resonant of Taurus, the lover. An embrace of a wine.

Taurus, the lover.

There is a magnitude to your influence; a solidity to your character. You are grounded, humbled in the acceptance of who you are. There is no grappling with identity, only warmth, familiarity and knowing. You are connected, tranquil and self-assured.

You possess an independence. Peaceful and protected in your own nirvana. Your presence is calm, warm, pacifying. A beautiful, lulling meditative energy surrounds you that helps to ground others. A child of the earth, you are patient, methodical and unhurried. There is a generosity to your being. 

You harbour great strength and determination. An unwavering stability that won’t be shaken. It’s this loyalty, dedication and emotional stoicism that protects those close to your heart. You are a traditionalist in essence, adverse to change, though respectful of progress. Structured. Preferring the comfort of routine; as observed in the gradual, yet constant, change of seasons.

You want to experience life and the pleasure it brings. You are very much a sensory being existing in the physical realm. You work hard to relax in your liberation afforded, with a penchant for the finer things.

Finally you are a lover. Your approach to the world inflects a rounded softness and sensuality. There is a decadence and density to your heart.

Wonderfully tolerant, compassionate and tender.
