Latterly it asserts itself, dark and pronounced – 2017 Foggy Hill Vineyard “Definitus” Pinot Noir

Author: Stuart Robinson

Review Date: Aug 2019

Something akin to a block level wine off the Fleurieu’s Foggy Hill Vineyard. The Definitus strip being a sub-Ridge formed where ferruginuous sandstone comes close to the surface. The strip also marks a delineation between two rows of two Bernard Clones (115 and 117, planted in 2003).

Highly perfumed, violets, sour cherry, slight spirited/lifted note. Starts segueing to black fruit hints, as though they’re being summoned from the wine’s depths.

Light, fine tannin, makes its presence known initially. Carries with it a dark presentation, earthy and coffee grounds like in profile.

Latterly it asserts itself, dark and pronounced, it’s tight and closed at this juncture – cellar for a minimum of five years, drink over a further five to fifteen.
