08. Scorpio— 2019 SKIGH WINE STRANGE BREW Arneis


A distinctive wine, this drop emulates the opposing forces of Pluto and Mars that are iconic to Scorpio.

Intensely aromatic. Initially crisp and virile, with peppery notes of green capsicum and herbs. Yet the freshness gradually falls away to something decidedly fruitier. Notes of pear, honey and faint oak make their way onto the palate for a nice warm end. Full-bodied, with weight and density. A rounded viscosity in the mouth. 

What starts out as green and peppery ends on a warm and fruiter note. Slightly polarising - but in a good way.

This wine is the epitome of the Scorpio character; a cool, brisk facade that opens up to an enduring, rounded warmth over time.

Scorpio, the perfect storm.

As enigmatic as the ocean. Magnetic in your tidal pull. Calm to the surface while complexity reigns beneath. Depth, danger and complexity. Electric and transformative, you are the perfect storm.

Coveted emotions. You feel so strongly yet express so rarely. Constrained by a well-controlled nature. A friendly, open approach is your pretence for privacy. You invest so much in others yet reveal so little of yourself. Still, as reserved as you may try to be, your intensity cannot be ignored.

You sparkle with hypnotic magnetism; a transfixing force iconic to Scorpio. A dangerous allure, energetically polarising; you attract yet repel. Protective of the inner workings of your psyche. Mystery illuminated by fire; desire. It’s this air of ambiguity that makes you so seductive.

Ruled by both Pluto and Mars your energy is transformation, destruction and force. Patient to a point. The provocateur quickly becomes the victim. The sting of the Scorpion may be unspoken, but it is surely felt. A dark cloud descends. Amorphous, unbridled; a deluge.

Your soul’s purpose is to protect and contribute. A powerhouse of strength, drive and determination, collaboration is to resist the urge for control. Temper your ego and open your empathy. Aspiring to contribute your energy to a collective cause will bring you more meaning than going it alone. You are innately protective of others, profoundly paternal and completely loyal in love.

Passionate, powerful, volatile, creative and mesmerising. In a word; addictive.
