Pale Ruby bright red. Red cherry fruit, rose petals, violets and cinnamon with a touch of whole bunch influence. A lovely, fluid,medium bodied textured palate showing red cherry, strawberry and a touch of raspberry. A very delicious and polished Pinot Noir with high scores from all the Pros who tasted it. HH rated this #1 of 110 Pinot Noirs from Tasmania from the 2013 vintage. Obviously an exceptional terroir. Luckily I have one left. — 2 months ago
Fruity, easy drinking gewurztraminer. Not overly sweet, would match well with spice. — 6 months ago

Yep last night was a 2 bottle night 🙊 It was too hard to resist the urge as it was Pinot Noir Day after all.
I received this bottle of Tassie Pinot as a lovely gift from a wonderful lady I’ve done some work with in Perth (thank you Sheree!). She gave it to me over a year ago, but I got pregnant 🤰 before I had time to open it. So I’ve been waiting for the right moment to crack it now that the bub 👶 is here.
It’s a 2017 Pinot Noir from the Huon Valley (south of Hobart) made by Sailor Seeks Horse. Swipe across to see all the juicy info on the back label.
Sailor Seeks Horse is owned and operated by Paul & Gilli Lipscombe who studied in Margaret River and have worked in vineyards in France, Oregon and New Zealand. Their love is Chardonnay & Pinot Noir (my kind of people!).
So I pulled out my Pinot specific Riedel glass last night and got stuck in.
Beautiful! So worth the 12 month wait! From the garnet shade in the glass to the gorgeous aromas of plums, cherries and herbs. I was in love! In the mouth it’s beautifully balanced with red & black fruits coming through and juicy acidity. Elegant and delicious 🍷

Nuttiness and nougat. Clean lines and lovely definition. A bit of play between citrus and stone fruit. Really, a delicious wine. — 4 months ago

Nutty, with some unripe white peach/green apple. Touch of malo balanced by healthy acidity. Burgundy-adjacent. — 6 months ago
