2010 Foggy Hill – 93 Very good

Author: Jeremy Pringle

More than a few people expressed doubts when Brian Croser released his first Pinot Noir from the Foggy Hill Vineyard on the Fleurieu Peninsula. South Australian Pinot isn’t exactly a common commodity and apart from a few efforts in the

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

Author: Jeremy Oliver
Source: The Australian Wine Annual
Date: Jan 2013

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, …

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 …

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; …

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, …
