Foggy Hill Vineyard 2018 Pinot Noir Latest Reviews

Foggy Hill is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and is one of the coldest places on the Australian mainland. It creates a very unique style of Australian Pinot – particularly savoury, spicy and even meaty wines. The wines are also structural and have a pretty edge.

The 2018 shows its typical youthful flourish – floral, red cherry and wild strawberry fruits are matched by a touch of green herbs, baked earth and iron. It is then dry, light weight and sinewy – the fruit complex but currently underlying its structure which is dominant. This is a wine that needs time for that brooding Tapanappa Pinot character to emerge after which it will provide delicious, savoury drinking over the medium term

"Exquisite, haunting, certainly captivating" - 2018 Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

Cool site, warm year, as Brian Croser pitches it in the accompanying letter - detailed, and insightful as ever - with the sample.
An expressly aromatic take on Pinot Noir: Chinese five spice, sandalwood, something Plum like, a touch of Goji Berry even. Exquisite, haunting, certainly captivating. Supple, lithe - certainly initially so on entry - before a slight firmness and fine grain of tannin sweeps across the palate. A persistent line of flavour carries, seemingly perpetually. Haunting - a word I wanted to introduce, save for the fact I'd already done so.
