“a thoroughly serious pinot noir” - 95 points - 2012 Fleurieu Pinot Noir

Strong, clear and deep colour; a thoroughly serious pinot noir, with a fragrant bouquet followed by a black cherry and plum palate with excellent texture and structure; tannins and oak are woven through the mid-palate and into the finish. Will repay cellaring.

"Smoky nose. [...] Still quite youthful but you can see where it is headed. Pretty chewy for the moment but nice savour. Really succulent."

"Quite a rich array of aromas on the nose – not a burgundy copy but something very interesting and valid. Dry finish. A hint of iron filings on the finish but it really goes on in the mouth. Well done!"

Tapanappa Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay 2010

A seamless, satiny ride through the palate with a peppery, leafy herb inflection sitting high. Elegant feel with savoury tannin profile, muted oak and dry stalkiness chiming in. Complexity and finesse. Great expression fo Foggy Hill in 2010

An exceptional wine, 96 points - 2010 Foggy Hill Pinot Noir

An exceptional wine likely to build along classical lines. Its complex, smoky bouquet of red rose petals, dark cherries and toasty vanilla oak reveals nuances of beetroot, rhubarb and five spice plus a whiff of dusty stalkiness. Long and elegant, with a powdery, fine-grained chassis beneath its translucently bright flavours of sweet juicy berries and cherries, it finishes savoury and very finely balanced, with remarkable length and fresh acidity.

2010 Foggy Hill Pinot - 95 points, Great length and persistence

Source: 
Wine Companion Magazine
Review Date: 
Feb/Mar 2013

Light, but still bright primary colour; an elegant and polished wine, harmony its key word; fruit, oak (30% new), tannins and acidity have been precisely judged; the palate is only light- to medium-bodied, yet has great length and persistence to its red berry fruits.

2010 Foggy Hill Pinot - exquisitely balanced

This high-altitude Fleurieu Peninsula wine is both exquisitely balanced and very Burgundian. It's a medium-bodied wine, concentrated, but with everything exquisitely in place. Matured in French oak barriques, it has dark cherry, brambly and savoury notes on the palate and some fleshy nuances.

And the evolution of this wine continues. Sealed now under screwcap, it has a pale, lilting red-purple colour in the glass and smells instantly of bright, fresh pinot noir, with cherry and strawberry fruits framed up by toasty, cedary oak; some musky fragrance and charcuterie too. The palate's fresh and juicy, with acidity featuring amid fine, smooth tannin structure and lively wild ed fruit flavour.

exquisitely balanced and scarily Burgundian [the 2010 Foggy Hill Pinot Noir]

Review Date: 
9th of September 2012

The latest Tapanappa pinot noir release from winemaking veteran Brian Croser's Foggy Hill Vineyard - a cool site at 350 metres above sea level on the Fleurieu Peninsula - is both exquisitely balanced and scarily Burgundian. It's a medium-bodied wine, concentrated, but with everything in place. It has dark cherry, brambly and savoury notes on the palate, some fleshy nuances and plenty of length on the finish. And, joy of joys, it is bottled under screw cap.
