Virgo— 2018 MUSK LANE Gewurztraminer

$49.00

This drop is delicate. Light, yet complex, just like you.

Elegantly floral-scented; light blossom and rose, white peach, nectarine and lychee with a hint of grapefruit. The off-dry palate brings more tropical fruit characters; luscious lychee and peach, well-balanced by clean minerality and light acidity. Medium bodied with an oily viscosity; a fluidity.

Romantic, fragrant and elusive; a wine that echoes the Virgoan unattainability.

Virgo, the perfectionist.

You are delicate. Intelligent and poised. You are defined by your contribution, by your acts of service. Efficient, accurate, considered. Light, beautiful, impossible and unattainable.

Personified by the virgin goddess of agriculture your fixed, earthy nature likes to have its feet firmly planted on the ground. You like life to go as expected, or rather, as you have planned. You respect methodology and hard work. Recognising that consistency and diligence are the keys to success.

Your practical nature and intelligent mind can make relationships difficult to navigate. You don’t register emotion on a primal level as others do, you are governed by the mind. Rational. Intolerant of messy, unpredictable affairs. Instead, you crave romance as an ideal in its purest form. There is a difficult polarity in this; your level head in impasse with your idealistic heart. Practicality pushes, while romanticism pulls and the outcome is often to abstain entirely, hence the virginal connotations. Love will always be a challenge for the perfectionist. 

You are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. However, its influence is internal. You channel information like no other, with discreet selectivity. 

Meticulous. You are the aficionado of process with an incredible gift of bringing order out of chaos, illustrating the beauty and perfection you so desire. You live in a material world. 

In your quest for idealism you can be critical of yourself and others. Constant judgement can be both exhaustive and destructive. You are prone to worry and dissatisfaction as your expectations are always high. 

Your soul’s purpose is to help; to assist on a practical level. You are a kind, committed supporter who draws on your clever resourcefulness to solve the problems of those around you. You smooth the edges of the mess which is life.
