Sailor Seeks Horse 2021 Pinot Noir
Winery : Sailor Seeks Horse
Sailor Seeks Horse, one of Tasmania's cult-status pinot labels, is the creation of winemakers Paul and Gilli Lipscombe. Paul and Gilli arrived in Tasmania after studying winemaking/viticulture in Margaret River and with experience in Oregon and New Zealand. They settled in the Huon and set about reviving a derelict vineyard at Cradoc, which had been planted in 2005 and subsequently abandoned. The wines have received extraordinary acclaim from the very first releases.
Michele's notes: Engagingly fragrant with cherry/berry fruits and black pepper. Quite pure initially, but a sweet, jubey character comes through, adding richness. In the mouth, the texture is sleek with a delicious glycerol edge. Anise spice, cola and plum glaze all add complexity to the tasty and persistent fruit. A beguiling Pinot Noir.
