95 Points | Angus Hughson – 2018 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Vineyard DEFINITUS Pinot Noir

Author: Angus Hughson

Review Date: May 2021

For Foggy Hill the 2018 Definitus is quite open for business at a young age, no doubt thanks to the warm and dry vintage. Bright mid cherry in colour, there is a powerful core of dark and red cherry fruits with distinctly spicy, herbal and slightly meaty complexity, plus French oak also playing its part. The palate is dry and strong – with generous earthy, truffle nuances over layers of cherry compote fruit with balanced tannins that provide a long finish. It’s a delicious pinot noir with good aging potential but lacks the very highest levels of delicacy.
