04. Cancer— 2015 CRFT 'Fechner' Shiraz


A velvety Shiraz made for the Cancerians who revel in decadence at home.  

Aromatics to escape into. Intoxicating, almost aphrodisiacal, sweet, rich blackberry notes entwined with whiffs of cardamom, chai tea and dark chocolate. The ensuing result of all guilty pleasures in one comforting drop. This sheer embrace of a wine is the perfect pairing for the sensitive, moon-ruled Cancer.

Structured, mesmerising, sensational Syrah. An expression that's loving, loyal and warm.


Winemaker’s notes

‘Hand-picked in the cool of the morning and gently destemmed to preserve whole berries. Fermented in an open top tank with a light hand plunge two-three times daily. Basket pressed directly to oak with 3 weeks’ barrel fermentation followed by 10 months’ maturation in oak - 80% French, 20% American, 15% new oak. Unfined, unfiltered, vegan.

Meaty and savoury with smoky notes and black cardamom, yet lifted with bright fruits, berries and fresh plum. Dense and layered, every mouthful offers more to the story. The soil, the minerality, the small sweet dark berries all there, giving a wine of great elegance and depth.  Complex and intriguing as always and classically Eden – it opens, grows and evolves with every glass.’

Cancer, the romantic.

Shy, protective and sentimental. A gentle soul. Your hard outer shell endures, safeguarding the softness of your heart. You live in a world guided by your senses. Led by your intuition and your ability to feel. You are the romantic. 

Loyal and loving, you are the nurturer of the zodiac. Deeply sympathetic and kind to those in need. Ruled by the Moon, the planet of sensation, you are heavily influenced by emotion. Your softer side becomes you.

You are the most sensory and reflective of beings. Nostalgia belongs to Cancer. You have an incredible talent for recollection, and with such a powerful memory and such a vivid imagination, you have the ability to recreate any scenario from the past and feel it again in full force.

There is a vulnerability in this. A fragility that craves the protection and comfort of home. You covet this place, or person, you call your own, gathering within it the things that mean the most to you. Mementos evoking sensation become your collection of calm and reassurance. This arrangement affords you a sense of security; a shelter from the storm.

The shadow side to feeling so deeply is the transience of your emotional cycles. The inconsistencies and contradictions. Prone to bouts of melancholia one minute, the next pure elation. Your moods are as changeable as the moon.

Dramatic, committed and sentimental, you inspire sensation in those around you.
