“No shortage of complexity” – Foggy Hill 2012 Pinot Noir

Quite fascinating to watch the relatively young Foggy Hill Vineyard reveal its identity via Pinot Noir. There’s already a distinct flavour profile and it’s no shrinking violet. Despite that I reckon it does taste varietal and it is one of the very few South Australian takes on the grape that I enjoy drinking.

There’s plenty of sweet fruit stuffing. Blackberries over the red-toned sort; raspberry, strawberry jam and the like. Quite a kick of oak from 10 months in barriques. Some earthiness, leaf, mint and rhubarb. No shortage of complexity. Plenty of structure too with acid and graphite tannin laying out the flavours. Showed at its best on day three of tasting and will clearly benefit from time in the bottle. 92+

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
