It’s about the minerality. Length, intensity, structure.
About the Wine
Sailor Seeks Horse has been one of the breakout Tasmanian producers of the last couple of years. The Lipscombes are one of Tasmanian wine's power couples, having taken Home Hill to soaring heights in recent times.
Their own private label is rare as hens teeth and of supreme quality. Grown on their own vineyard in the Huon Valley, this is quickly becoming one of Tasmania's most sought-after white wines.
This is Chardonnay at its most pure and restrained. The wonderful fruit from this blossoming site squarely placed front and centre for all to admire. It's razor sharp, tightly wound and intensely focused.
This is a serious modern Australian Chardonnay.
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. As Mike Bennie declared with Paul and Gilli's inaugural 2013 Pinot Noir release, "We have here a new star in the making." Tasmanian Pinot and Chardonnay lovers, don't miss these scintillating wines.
