12. Pisces— 2020 SMALLFRY 'Isolar' Riesling Roussanne


This wine has weight, breadth and body, while still presenting a cleansing quality. Both brightness and depth are epitomised in this dreamy white blend - an ideal pairing for Pisces.

Intensely aromatic. Lifted floral notes, tropical fruit characters are brightened by citrus. The palate starts out bright and refreshing; brisk and astringent with yellow grapefruit and pineapple notes. Mellowing to show soft honeysuckle and creamy stone fruit characters of nectarine and white peach. The light texture in this wine and mild, savoury leesiness, is balanced by the acid and creamy fruit characters. Bright, soft, silky and smooth. It’s a winding journey of a wine.

This hazy little number has enough breadth to hold emotional space, while still remaining bright and illuminated enough to let imaginations run wild. Perfect for the dream-chasing Piscean. 


Winemaker’s notes

‘60% Riesling, 40% Roussanne. This represents a more traditional approach, whole bunch basket pressed and straight to barrel for fermentation and maturation on gross lees. Because we picked later for riper spectrum flavours it is the Roussane that gives the freshness and acidity while the Riesling plays a juicier, fruitier role.’ Unfined or filtered.

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.
