Just like the 2018 Vintage this Pinot Noir continues to excites us. Now we have found this awesome Tassie Pinot the wait for the next vintage is always too long. But it is here! 2021 sees this classic cool cool cool climate be as sought after as ever; light and elegant, yet full of depth, full of red and blue fruits with a hint of earthiness. 


Sailor Seeks Horse are by far and away one of Tasmania's hottest new producers. They are a small batch operation in every sense of the word - a husband and wife team doing it all themselves; Paul looking after the vineyards and Gill as the winemaker. They have a genuine cult following - not just a few articles and posts on social media - old school collectors wanting to get their hands on the limited production wines. How lucky are we!


From The Winemaker

The season ticked along without much fuss until we approached picking time. After an arid summer, a 60mm rain event came a couple of weeks before harvest and split some of the smaller berries (‘chicks’). This was somewhat stressful but fortunately, they dried up soon after and we were thankful to the Lubianas for lending us a ‘shaker table’ that removes those shriveled berries as they move along it after being destemmed. It's often the 'one-percenters' that elevate the wines to a different level in these years. 

Much like 2018, this release is one we're quietly confident about and hope that you enjoy as much as us!

FOOD MATCHING

This is a classic and classy Pinot Noir from Tasmania. Time to lift your home cooking game. Quail. Do it! The earthy, spicy nature of this Pinot Noir, coupled with its dark cherry fruit character, matches perfectly with game meats. You are on!

Solid buy

Normally a Burgundy drinker of the floral mineral variety, this Sailor Horse is a reliable go-to alternative at absolutely the right price. Must try - make sure it gets an hour of air tho and not too cold.

Classic Tassie Pinot

This is a beautiful wine. You will be hard pressed to find a better example of cool climate Pinot than Tassie Pinot and this is one of the best. Pricey, but you get what you pay for with Pinot. Highly recommended and this wine will stand up to game, steak or strong cheeses.
