Exquisite, haunting, certainly captivating – 2018 Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

Cool site, warm year, as Brian Croser pitches it in the accompanying letter – detailed, and insightful as ever – with the sample.
An expressly aromatic take on Pinot Noir: Chinese five spice, sandalwood, something Plum like, a touch of Goji Berry even. Exquisite, haunting, certainly captivating. Supple, lithe – certainly initially so on entry – before a slight firmness and fine grain of tannin sweeps across the palate. A persistent line of flavour carries, seemingly perpetually. Haunting – a word I wanted to introduce, save for the fact I’d already done so.
