Brave New Wine

09. Sagittarius— MV BRAVE NEW WINE 'Doppelgänger' Skin-Contact White Blend


A wine to stimulate the intellect and stoke your fiery nature; this drop is warm and captivating.

Tangerine-hued and sweetly scented of amazingness, ambiguity and intrigue. The palate wows of honeysuckle, grapefruit, peach, pineapple and orange peel. A fantastical concoction perfect for a spontaneous fling. Structured, textural, skinsy and playfully warm; a sunny salute. Finishes long, on an almost Negroni-like note. Determined, with those not-wanting-to-go-home-at-the-end-of-the-party type vibes.

In a pairing aligned to the Sagittarian desire for freedom, this is a wine that will take you places. It’s pure, unabated adventure in a glass. Drink and go forth.


Winemaker’s notes

‘A Multi-variety, multi-vintage skin-contact white. Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino were all fermented separately with different times on skins varying from two weeks to 12 months. Complexity was built in with barrel ageing, lees contact and some components under flor in ceramic egg and barrel. It was then all carefully blended together with wine reserved from last year’s blend (kind of solera system). It's bright, and shiny, yet deep and cerebral, with warm spice notes of clove and star anise, with dried orange peel, jasmine and rose. Layered, complex, sexy/slippery and super-long.’

Sagittarius, the adventurer.

Fresh and unaffected. You experience life - as the adventure you make it - for the first time. With a contagious energy of spontaneity, bravery and naiveté you are wide open, seeing only possibilities in front of you. This bright-eyed buoyancy never fades. Childlike in your wonder for today and anticipation for tomorrow.

Lively and fun-loving, you are a curious creature. You seek knowledge and adventure to expand your mind. A restless spirit and a mutable sign, you yearn for change and new experiences. You long for freedom and independence and must have space to roam.

Honest, almost to a fault. There is a sincerity and transparency about you. You always have the best of intentions.

Jupiter, your ruling planet, has gifted you with faith, optimism and positivity. Fueled by your fiery nature, you project this energy outward. In the realm of hope you are extremely expansive. Leaning into this you have the ability to affect great change for humanity.

You refuse to accept the seriousness of life. As a jovial Jupiter soul, you find bureaucracy and constraints suffocating. Too much responsibility weighs you down. You are happiest when you are afforded the freedom you so crave.

Powered by mental brilliance, the archer shoots for the stars. Bored by life’s limitations your heartfelt desires lie within another realm. With sparkling intellect, blind optimism and fiery drive, no dream is too big to turn into a reality.
