Light and kindness in a wine, this drop is the ideal Aquarian pairing. A delicate pinot noir; vibrant, intriguing and unrestrained. Fruit driven and juicy with notes of raspberry, baked cherry and beetroot. The palate finishes with chalky tannins driven by whole bunch texture.
Bright and beautiful. Elegant and light. This is a gentle, pretty wine with intelligence and structure, just like Aquarius.
For best results, decant and allow some time for the whole bunch characters to open. Just like Aquarius, whilst always friendly and open, the unique quirks and nuances of this wine take time to fully express themselves.

Aquarius, the truth seeker.
Light with possibilities, bright with intelligence and wholly unique. Cool and aloof.
Interested, opinionated and wonderful. A friend to everyone. Charismatic and eccentric, you possess a relaxed, self-assurance that others are drawn to. A non-conformist at heart, you delight in rocking convention and in your refusal to conform; you are unapologetically yourself.
Generally a tranquil and gentle soul, you are motivated by helping others, not through service or small gestures but rather sweeping, violent change. You possess an intelligence unlike any other; analytical and objective. There is a sharpness to your perception that sees through a different lens. You think bigger than others can perceive.
You know your own mind and won’t have it altered by anyone. Fixed in nature, you are determined in your ideas and dedicated in your beliefs. You innately seek the truth.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of surprise, innovation and technology. With your occasional erraticism and unpredictability, you are a mirror of its influence. This inclination rejects the archaic in favour of the new. Innovation is the product of research and continuous experimentation. Alert and inquisitive, you are driven by what is yet to be discovered. Attuned to higher spheres of thought.
You have so much to offer the world; light, kindness, intelligence and hope. Yet surrounded by the energy of others leaves you craving space; time alone to mediate on new ideas. The rebel must also be the recluse. It has been said that ‘to stifle an Aquarian is to pin down a butterfly’. So beautiful and fragile, restraining such a creature would destroy it, denying the world the vibrancy of its presence.
Freedom-loving Aquarians are happiest when living their independence.
