Cool, calm and collected. A refreshing red for those who know how to work.
A herbal nose of mint and eucalyptus. A palate that is characteristically controlled, almost reserved. Faint, tart cherries and hints of liquorice only just distinguishable behind a cool, minty front.
Restrained and responsible, just like you.
'The wine was fermented with indigenous yeast. 30% whole bunch pumped over thrice daily and pressed off after 13 days on skins and maturated in French oak barrels, of which 30% were new. The wine had a good old slumber through winter but when I tasted it at the beginning of spring I was very, very excited about how it had woken up from its sleep, so vibrant and fresh but with a wonderful purity and jump out of the glass aroma and flavour. Bottled without fining or filtration in mid-November 2018.'

Capricorn, the cultivator.
You have incredible tenacity. Focused and methodical; the cultivator. Master of your own inner fortitude. Patient and enduring.
You possess a no-nonsense approach to life. Pragmatic and morally righteous your spectrum of view is black or white. You preferring not to play in shades of grey, yet contrast becomes you.
Your Saturnian structure is ever present, though you are comfortable in rebellion. You have a deeply serious side, yet you douse it in a mischievous sense of humour. In one realm you may feel complete confidence, while in another you may feel strangely out of your depth. This contrasting self-belief creates an inner tension. A frustration; you aim to be good at everything. Success and achievement define you. There is an almost bristling determination to your energy; a productivity that has little patience for mediocrity. Your nature is one capable of moving mountains. Yet, in this pursuit of excellence, you tend to underestimate your own achievements.
The road to progress leaves little space for reflection. You have difficultly accepting compliments and rarely acknowledge you own success. You are the undisputed taskmaster of the zodiac. However, all work and no play makes for a monotonous existence. Stopping to smell the roses gives you the much needed perspective to appreciate your efforts.
You don’t often pay attention to your emotions, being so occupied in other areas. You see things differently. Grounded in your focus and structured in your method. Emotions aren’t planned, measured or controllable, hence they are not your native language. Your values however, speak volumes to the strength of your character.
You’re a slow burn, but your fire lasts a lifetime.
