Foggy Hill is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and is one of the coldest places on the Australian mainland. It creates a very unique style of Australian Pinot – particularly savoury, spicy and even meaty wines. The wines are also structural and have a pretty edge.
The 2018 shows its typical youthful flourish – floral, red cherry and wild strawberry fruits are matched by a touch of green herbs, baked earth and iron. It is then dry, light weight and sinewy – the fruit complex but currently underlying its structure which is dominant. This is a wine that needs time for that brooding Tapanappa Pinot character to emerge after which it will provide delicious, savoury drinking over the medium term.
