Charlotte Dalton

10. Capricorn— 2018 CHARLOTTE DALTON ‘Love Me, Love You’ Shiraz

$61.00

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 Capricorn.

 

Winemaker’s notes

'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. The cultivator, you are focused and methodical. Master of your own inner fortitude. Structured, responsible and enduring. Conscientious and dutiful.

You possess a no-nonsense approach to life. Pragmatic and morally righteous, your spectrum of view is black or white. Preferring not to play in shades of grey, yet contrast becomes you.

Your Saturnian stability is ever present, though you often seek rebellion. Deeply serious in nature, and yet you have a mischievous sense of humour. In the professional realm you may feel complete confidence,  while in matters of the heart you may feel strangely out of your depth. 

This contrasting self-belief can create an inner tension. A frustration, as you aim to excel 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.

The fast road to progress leaves little space for reflection. You have difficultly accepting compliments and rarely acknowledge your own success. You are the undisputed taskmaster of the zodiac. In this pursuit of excellence, you forget to recognise your own achievements. Stopping to smell the roses will give you the perspective to appreciate yourself. 

You may not pay much attention to your emotions, being so preoccupied 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.
