2013 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir is the product of a warmer than average vintage from the very cool Foggy Hill Parawa site. THe 2013 vintage is proof of the adage that the best wines come from the coolest sites in the warmest years.
The colour is dense by Pinot Noir standards reflecting the sunny vintage effect on berry pigmentation and the effect of plucking the leaves from around the bunches before veraison.
The fruit aroma is of ripe and spicy black berry-fruits with floral and notes that contribute to Pinot's "peacock's tail".
The palate has intense and sweet fruit flavours reflecting the aromas that persist but with very definite tannin structure that provides a savoury finish.
2013 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir is "a pure expression of the unique terroir of the Foggy Hill Vineyard" - Winemaker Brian Croser.
