About The Wine
Paul and Gilli Lipscombe are doing some fantastic work from their small vineyard planting in the Huon Valley.
Their 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 2018 is an excellent release. A long growing season yielding a wine of perfect balance and exceptional concentration. Paul says the 2018 has a little more "stuffing" than usual. "Typically we talk about intensity but 2018 also has a lot more density. It's really different to the 2017. We love both those wines but for different reasons."
This small batch premium Pinot Noir is one of their best releases to date. It will be one of the Huon Valley's most sought-after releases of the year.
About Sailor Seeks Horse
Sailor Seeks Horse is one of the Apple Isle's most exciting new producers. It's a husband and wife team behind the scenes, Paul the viticulturalist and Gilli the winemaker.
The Lipscombes produce exquisite Pinot Noir and Chardonnay off their estate vineyard, planted by their own hands back in 2005. The wines have startling energy to them, with a pinpoint balance of fruit and savoury spice. They are released in perilously small amounts and are never around for long.
With the small cult following the couple have garnered since starting their own label, their wines are now hunted by serious collectors who want to be in on the ground floor.
Tasmanian Pinot and Chardonnay lovers, don't miss these scintillating wines.
