A trio of reviews from Jancis Robinson

Tapanappa, Whalebone Vineyard 2009 Wrattonbully, 16.5+

“Mid blackish ruby. Firm and meaty on the nose. Actually it does not taste dominated by Cabernet. Subtle and appetising. Still with tannins in evidence but very fine textured and warming but certainly not hot on the finish. Cries out for food. Clearly made with minimal additions. Long and vibrant. Still quite young and earthy.”

Tapanappa, Whalebone Vineyard Merlot/Cabernet Franc 2009 Wrattonbully, 17

“Bright ruby red. Subtle, savoury, earthy notes. Really very restrained for an Australian red! Perhaps the slightest of minty hints? Very cool, sophisticated, dry finish. Super-appetising and quite youthful. Some palates may even criticise it for being too light. Lots more still to come. Hint of tarmacadam on the finish.”

Tapanappa, Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012 Fleurieu, 16.5

“Pale crimson. Sweet and light on the palate with fresh acidity. There was not a jot of oak in evidence and the finish was bone dry. It did seem to me to be very Côte de Beaune in style – certainly no blockbuster. A little muted at the moment, but certainly distinctive in an Australian context.”

Cellar Door opens daily, 11am – 4pm
