Sailor Seeks Horse, Pinot Noir 2016
This tiny vineyard is one of Australia’s most southerly located in the Huon valley in southern Tasmania. Paul and Gilli Lipscombe own the vineyard and make the wines and both have considerable vineyard and winemaking experience behind them. From working together in the Languedoc to New Zealand, Oregon and Margaret River they spent a lot of time researching and considering the best possible vineyard site with the aim  to produce Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay finally settling on this ideal north facing vineyard which is sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds. Best described as a warm site within a cool climate, the soil is free-draining quartz inflicted mudstone soil over clay. The vineyard is planted to a large variety of Dijon clones as well as numerous other clones planted by the previous owners and all vineyard work is done as organically as possible.So to the name, where does that come from? There was a handwritten sign on the wall at the Red Velvet Lounge in Cygnet, our local coffee and cake respite from the Tasmanian weather. It said, “Sailor Seeks Horse” and went on to explain that the author had sailed solo around the world and ridden across the US from coast to coast and back again…on a mule. He’d then decided he wanted to travel around Tasmania by horse but didn’t have one. So, was there anyone who would lend him one? If they didn’t have a horse then a pony would do. It was an idea that resonated with us. Here we were, trying to do something a little bit crazy, without much money and requiring a little bit of help to get to where we wanted to be.
Springvale Melrose Pinot Noir 2018
Vibrant raspberry jelly nose on an earthy background. Although Pinot Meunier only makes up 7% of this wine, it is pronounced on the nose and palate, coming through with a subtle mushroomy character. At first blush, this seems to be the ultimate quaffing wine, but with time in the glass, there is a persistent structure that develops, hinting at its premium pedigree. An extroverted, happy wine that wears its varietal exuberance on its sleeve.

St Agnes XO Grand Reserve 40 Year Old
'Deep amber colour; the bouquet shows more oak vanillin than the Imperial and is richer and less fragrant, while the palate is weightier, with a slight spirit afterburn. Very spicy and complex, with lots of toasted-nut and dried-citrus peel aromas. It's a big spirit; a more hefty, powerful, oak-influenced (but not 'oaky'), old-fashioned Australian style brandy, with terrific length. Very impressive.' Huon Hooke

St Agnes XO Imperial 20 Year Old
'Bright mid-amber colour. Superbly perfumed bouquet, sweetly fruity with dried citrus fruits galore, plus fresh leather, curing meadow hay and subtle spices. The flavour is very intense and penetrating, powerful and elegant. A modern style, and more Cognac-like than a traditional Australian brandy. A touch of headiness is appealing. The palate is refined, elegant and very long, with a clean finish and no rough edges to its spirit, nor oakiness. A superb brandy of great class.' Huon Hooke

Tapanappa Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

2016 Tapanappa Tiers Chardonnay ripened early and fully because of the very warm growing season. After gravity settling the partially clarified juice and its fluffy lees were racked to French Vosges oak barriques, 33% new and the balance 1 and 2 use and allowed to ferment at the cool air temperature of the Piccadilly Valley autumn.The 2016 Tiers Chardonnay was left on full lees in barrique until the summer when it was clear racked and prepared for bottling in mid March.

Riper honey and fig characters complement the typical Tiers Vineyard peach flavour and aroma and significant texture. The wine finishes with a grapefruit and quince nuance again typical of The Tiers Vineyard terroir expression.

Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2014

"Seriously good wine, this – DNA of great cabernet franc wines with briar, saltbush, dark berries, pepper and clove spice, whiffs of seaspray in the bouquet. The palate is succulent, long, medium weight. There’s a sheath of fine, graphite-like tannin. It’s a rare beauty." Mike Bennie

Tolpuddle Pinot Noir 2016
Bright, clear crimson; this is right up there with the best of the best from a great Tasmanian vintage, sharing the alluring, perfumed fruits and the integrity of high quality tannins proficing the structure for a long future.
