There is a lightness and vibrancy to this wine - a buoyancy almost - owing in part to the carbonic maceration and in part to its drink-now, nouveau style. Stimulating and agile, it’s the perfect pairing for Gemini season.
Charming scents of dried mulberries, herbs and faint, dusty rose. The palate is soft and lush, fruit-driven by red cherries and strawberries. Earthen herbs and fine, talc-like tannins to finish.
There is a lively energy about this drop. It’s an instant-gratification, Beaujolais-style kind of a wine - fun, easy going and perfect for the impatience of Gemini.
'The 2019 Ziggurat Pinot Noir is a balancing act between whole bunch carbonic maceration, and whole berry, ferment, with minimal maceration. 50:50 between the styles, attempting to find the balance between spice and sweetness, in a fresh, early drinking style, its Pinot Noir, chasing a Beaujolais style.'

Gemini, the catalyst.
You are animated; full of expression. Sparkling eyes flash with the brilliance of your imagination. Enchanting. Exuberant. Open-minded and inquisitive. Sensitive and stimulating. You are the catalyst.
Restless and reviving. Always moving. In need of excitement and change. You are constantly seeking, as impatience and changeability are such a strong part of your nature. On this quest to escape boredom, your imagination knows no bounds.
A true idealist. Though this creativity can be a double-edged sword. The utopia in your mind will always be more vibrant than the reality you are living, so you are forever searching for a brighter horizon. You are all air and you belong in your element.

Your soul’s purpose is to communicate. The zodiac’s eloquent messenger. You are interested in everything. Agile, flexible, adaptable. Your dual nature only expands your repertoire, giving you the ability to explore many realms at once.
You have a tendency to over commit, believing boredom is a fate worse than death. In your determination to be busy you can scatter yourself hither and yon. Choosing fewer pursuits with discipline and focus will see you realise your greatest desires, instead of witnessing merely the beginning of a million dreams.
Ruled by Mercury you possess it’s nervous energy. The air is electric around you. Bright, friendly and sparkling with curiosity. Crackling with quick movements and changeable tendencies; it’s a volatility that will carry you through almost anything.
Delicate, light and captivating. You are inspiring and reviving those around you.
