Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir, Fleurieu Peninsula

£35.84
Tapanappa, located just north of Coonawarra, is the project of Brian Croser (formerly of Petaluma), Jean-Charles Cazes of Chateau Lynch-Bages in Pauillac, and Socit Jacques Bollinger, the parent company of Champagne Bollinger. The defining mission of the partnership is to produce Australian fine wines of distinction. These wines are taken from three distinguished sites; the Tiers Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, the Foggy Hill Vineyard on the southern edge of the Fleurieu Peninsula and the Whalebone Vineyard in Wrattonbully. The partnership has the added advantage of being able to draw on the partners’ extensive “old world” fine wine experience, enhancing Tapanappa’s ability to produce unique Australian “terroir” driven wines.

The tiny 4ha Foggy Hill vineyard on the highest point of the Fleurieu Peninsula, where fog gambols off the Great Southern Ocean, has a much lower diurnal temperature difference than the Piccadilly Valley, making it cooler and more moderate, and therefore ideal for growing Pinot Noir, first harvested here in 2007.

Tasting Note:
Graceful red cherry and strawberry fruits. A beautifully fragrant wine, a master stroke for a supremely elegant and pure red-berried Pinot strongly reminiscent of Volnay, Burgundy.
