2018 Foggy Hill Vineyard “DEFINITUS” Pinot Noir

Author: Campbell Mattinson

Review Date: May 2021

There are four hectares of pinot noir growing on the Foggy Hill vineyard; this is from a one-hectare strip. It’s planted at a density of 4444 vines/hectare, using clones 115 and 777, all planted on rootstock.

Firm, ripe and convincing. Cedarwood oak shows keenly but fruit-derived flavours are yet myriad. Dry tobacco, garden herbs, beet notes, a luscious almost jellied berry character, woodsmoke and anise. There’s a smoky, twiggy bitterness to the aftertaste and it’s a most pleasant thing; it helps elevate it. This wine has the structure to age but I’m not convinced its a long termer; the next handful of years though will be good ones.
