This 2021 Definitus special bottling of Foggy Hill Pinot Noir has a translucent, medium intensity cerise colour.
The aroma is immediately of rose florals and wild strawberries. There is an underlying more complex aroma of ripe blackberries and Chinese 5 spice definitive of the Foggy Hill terroir.
The flavours are fresh and intense. Because of the very moderate alcohol (12.3%) the wine is lilting in the mouth but with a significant texture to compliment the characteristic Foggy Hill earthy, spicey complexity. The tannins are fine but pervasive and the cool year 2021 Definitus will benefit from a decade or longer of bottle age.
