Aquarius— 2018 SCINTILLA Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

$48.00

Light and kindness in a wine, this drop is the perfect Aquarian pairing.

A delicate pinot noir; vibrant, intelligent and unrestrained. Fruit driven and juicy with notes of strawberry, red cherry. Hints of tannin and a pleasant peppery character. Bright and beautiful.

An intelligent red, that's only mildly structured. This is a wine that barely has it’s feet on the ground, just like Aquarius.

 

Winemaker’s notes

'Organically farmed from Mt Compass, Fleurieu Peninsula. Hand-picked and 75% de-stemmed whole berries with 25% whole bunch. Open topped fermented and pressed to old French barriques. Racked and bottled with no additions. Bright, light and not so tight. Juicy red berries with bulk acid to fill the palate. Just enough structure to help pause and avoid swigging straight from the bottle.'

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.
