2007 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Vineyard Fleurieu Peninsula Pinot Noir

That’s right – a pinot from Fleurieu. Mind you, the vineyard sits at 350 metres above sea level and cops a lot of fog. Given the head start that the cool Victorian regions, Tasmania and the Adelaide Hills have with pinot noir, this wine is the product of a daring business decision. The 2007 isn’t bad, either. The nose is definitely varietal, but there’s a plummy ripeness to it that’s fairly plain. The palate is more impressive – structured and earth – but it trails off slightly. We’ll watch this site with great interest as the vines age.

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
