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.
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.
