Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir 2008 – 91+ Points

Author: Gary Walsh
Review Date: Jun 2010

Interesting wine this – it tastes distinctly different to most Australian Pinot.

There’s plenty of sweet spicy oak on opening (it subsides) and then come red fruits with some dark cherry. Medium bodied, fresh and firm with particularly attractive kitten tongue tannins. There’s some alcohol warmth too, although it’s not distracting, and a firmer sappy undercurrent underwriting its serious structure and nature. At the moment it looks somewhat disjointed – but I’m guessing it will pull itself together pretty well. Clearly a promising site for Pinot Noir.

Rated : 91+ Points
