2007 Tapanappa Pinot Noir, Fleurieu Peninsula

Nearly all you need to know about this wine is printed on the back and front labels of the bottle; for example, the fruit hails from the Foggy Hill vineyard situated at Parawa, the highest point of the peninsula. How about that the Bernard clones of pinot noir are densely planted in a vineyard littered with 67-million-year-old ironstone and produce a meagre crop of 5 tonnes per hectare. Or that only 850 cases of the wine were made. The most important part is what’s inside the bottle. This is magnificent pinot noir made by Brian Croser, who describes his wine (yes, on the label) as “a pure expression of a unique Australian terroir”.
