Xavier Goodridge

10. Capricorn— 2018 XAVIER GOODRIDGE ‘Halfway to Heaven’ Chardonnay


A modern style of Chardonnay for the hard-working Capricorn. This drop is bright and refreshing, without forgoing its structure.

Lighter notes of green apple, citrus and pear with crisp acidity, moving toward tropical fruit characters. Good energy, medium-bodied with substance and texture. Vigorous, flavourful and enduring with welcomed tenacity to finish.

A much needed respite after a long day. Understated, delicious expression. Endures methodically, just like Capricorn.


Winemaker’s notes

'Straight Chardonnay for this years Half Way to Heaven. The nose is slightly mineral, some green apple and underripe pineapple core and some very light floral notes. On the palate you’ll see well balanced acidity, pear, lemon and some faint white peach. Silky texture.'

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.
