About

Paul and Gilli Lipscombe are doing some fantastic work from their small vineyard planting in the Huon Valley.

Their 2015 Sailor Seeks Horse Pinot Noir is a masterclass in controlled power and elegance. They strive for balance in the vineyard which makes the work in the winery minimal.

“The Pinot Noirs we love display a delicate balance between red and dark fruits, high-toned aromatics, layered depth and verve. It’s something we hope to achieve in our Pinots and is a combination of site and sensitive winemaking.” - Gilli and Paul Lipscombe.

The 2015 is an excellent release. A great season right across Tasmania, this small batch premium Pinot Noir is one of their best releases to date. With 96 points from James Halliday and 94 points from Mike Bennie, this will be one of the region’s most sought-after releases of the year.

What It Tastes Like

“Spicy, pepper, red currants and cranberry, leaner spectrum but fine. Palate way softer, spreads well but webbed in fine tannins, refreshing acidity, cherry fruitiness, amaro finish. So sleek and fine. Soft. Beautiful.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
