Made by the Australian-French Tapanappa partnership, this wine from South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula sums up pinot noir’s sappy mystery well. Aromas of flowers, dark-cherry jam, forest earth and seamlessly integrated spicy oak lead through a satiny, medium-bodied mouthful with a long, aromatic finish.
Ageing? Drink over four years.
Food ideas Prosciutto-wrapped quail; mild soft cheeses.
