12. Pisces— 2019 PATRICK SULLIVAN ‘Rain’


A light, biodynamically farmed, red blend from Pat Sullivan. Summer drinking for the sensitive Piscean.  

Bright positivity shines through this rose-coloured vino. It’s a dreamy hue owing to a blend of Cabernet Franc and skin-contact Pinot Gris. 

Lifted, floral aromas of red berries. The palate is bright, juicy and moreish, showing raspberry, red cherry and spicy, pepper notes. Carbonic maceration encouraging even more vibrancy to the fruit characters and a buoyant, almost effervescent mouthfeel. Soft tannins and skinsy phenolics combine to bring harmonious texture and length to the palate.

A wine for the water child; sensitive and stimulating. This special drop is beautifully nuanced, delicate and intriguing. A feast for attuned Piscean perception. 


Winemaker’s notes

‘Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is fermented using carbonic maceration and the Pinot Gris is fermented on skins in stainless steel for one month. All wines are then transferred to puncheon to settle out and come together. The wines shows greater fruit weight and structure than the 2018 without losing any finesse. The wine has a well-structured palate of bright cherries, raspberries, a helping of spice then throws soft tannin akin to a great Barolo.’

Pisces, the dreamer.

Shimmering with wonder at the world. Charming and cheerful. The idealist, born to see the world through rose coloured glasses. Hazy and hopeful, you are the dreamer. Creative, esoteric, intuitive. Feeling your way through life.

In constant search for inspiration, your world has a filter of subtlety. Ultra-sensitive and somewhat resistant to reality, you create a calm space for yourself removed from the ills of the outside world. You imagine a gentler existence, where everyone is kind and all actions are beautiful.

As the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, you are all-knowing. A distillation of all the signs that preceded you, you hold a wealth of wisdom and cosmic experience. You are hyper-aware of your surroundings, almost anxious in your observation.

A kindness exists in you. An inexhaustible love for every living creature. Sensitive. A deep desire to protect the vulnerable. So compassionate that you absorb the stresses and struggles of others as if they were your own. So pained by the pain of others, that you are often suffering second-hand. Be wary of this tendency as the compounded emotions of others will leave you too depleted to deal with your own.

You are represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. A metaphor for the ultimate choice faced by your impressionable nature; to swim upwards towards light and expansion or to sink deeper in search of escapism.

Optimism is the greater challenge. It does not come easy to the deep feeling Pisces with your emotional spectrum so vast. You tend to take on the weight of the world.

Remember, you are just as affected by positivity as you are by pain. It’s a question of outlook; the choice is entirely yours. You possess incredible brightness, brilliance and influence when you consciously commit to happiness.
