Winsor’s Choice – Tapanappa 2010 Fleurieu Peninsula Pinot Noir

What a tempting wine this is. OK, it’s very youthful – and comes from young vines, too – planted by veteran winemaker Brian Croser at Parawa; a cool, foggy site on the Fleurieu Peninsula, in 2006. The proof is in the pudding, however, and Croser has been proved correct in identifying this as a special site. It’s probably a bigger wine than hoped for – the result of a warm vintage – with plenty of appealing sweet fruit, but there’s also impressive tannin structure and some silky elegance on the palate to keep the bold fruit in check. Great news for consumers, too, is that the wine is under screwcap; as is the Tapanappa 2010 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay. Only 500 cases were made, so it may pay to be quick off the mark.
