Writer's block

Ours is about 3 feet by 3 feet, and on our left is the account's block. The marketing block is down the hall.

We're joking. Obviously.

Ours is at least 5 by 5, and on Wednesdays we're allowed to write in coffee shops to maintain the illusion that we're "successful" and "writerly".

Coming up with a write up for the simple sake of a write up does, however, become difficult when we're staring complete lack of creativity right in the face. But apparently asking management to cancel all the deals for the day isn't a viable fix.

As they so delicately put it, it'd be like a comedian having the option to suddenly cancel a show if they're not feeling up to it. Not on our watch, they said. You'll do a write up whether you like it or not, they said. And be funny, they said.

So here we are, doing a write up and being funny.

Vineyards and Harvest

Tasting Notes

In the glass, Cygnus is a golden yellow with ripe peach and apricot aromas. On the palate, it is dominated by tropical fruits such as bananas, guavas and pineapples. The pleasing fruitiness of the wine countered by a sean of characteristic Swartland acidity and minerality. Thanks to it receiving 5 days of skin maceration, Cygnus is a very rich and full-bodied wine and a is perfect food wine.
