Tapanappa is the continuation of the 40-year mission of pioneering winemaker Brian Croser and his family to make world-class wines from the most “Distinguished Sites” in South Australia.
The name “Tapanappa” is inspired by the 550-million-year-old geological formation that underlies the Fleurieu Peninsula where we have our newest vineyard, Foggy Hill. The word Tapanappa is derived from the local aboriginal language, implying “sticking to the path”.
With a next generation of family closely involved, Brian continues his passion to achieve the finest expression of his choice of noble varieties in their best suited terroirs, no matter what each vintage brings.

SOLD OUT -2019 Tiers Chardonnay is exquisitely concentrated. Absolutely typical of Tiers, the wine has a significant texture. The aromas and flavours are tightly wound in this young Chardonnay and it will take some time to fully open up. The bright finishing acid and slight grape fruit bitterness lend a suitable end to the sweet fruit core of the wine.
This 2018 Definitus special bottling of Foggy Hill Pinot Noir has intense cerise colour. The aroma is of complex, ripe dark fruits, black and blueberries, faint cassis and hints of floral notes. The flavours are rich, ripe and dense with plum to compliment the characteristic Foggy Hill earthy, spicey complexity.
The 2016 vintage the Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Franc Merlot has the elegance and finesse expected of this right bank varietal blend. The tannins are fine and grainy providing a savoury and long finish.
