Frederick Stevenson

02. Taurus— 2019 FREDERICK STEVENSON 'Summertown' Pinot Noir


Sweet nothings for the Taurean nature child; a small batch Pinot Noir from Summertown in the Adelaide Hills. 

Bright, sweet-scented aromas of pomegranate, red berries and earthen herbs. This Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir has been produced from vines in organic conversion - a project tended by winemaker Steven Crawford on a friend’s property since 2017. This Pinot is an expression of nurture and progress.

Light, juicy and ever so gentle for the tactile Taurus. A grounded and gracious drop.


Winemaker’s notes

‘Grown by Paul & Sarah Hill, I have been helping them since they purchased the property in 2017 - conversion over to organics and a considerable re-address of pruning and training. 30-40% Whole Bunches, Matured in large format oak - 50% of which was 2 years old.’

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.
