Impressive wine, inherently complex – 2017 Foggy Hill Vineyard “Definitus” Pinot Noir

Author: Campbell Mattinson

Review Date: Aug 2019

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. It’s light, firm and immensely spicy. Roots, leaves, earth and wood combine with strawberry, red cherry, beet and violets. There’s a geranium-like character here; it’s a complex wine, inherently complex. Its charms are clean and yet its sleeves are well stocked; it has a lot more in store for the patient, cork permitting. Impressive, this wine is.
