Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir 2018

Cool site, warm year, as Brian Croser pitches it in the accompanying letter - detailed, and insightful as ever - with the sample.

An expressly aromatic take on Pinot Noir: Chinese five spice, sandalwood, something Plum like, a touch of Goji Berry even. Exquisite, haunting, certainly captivating.

Supple, lithe - certainly initially so on entry - before a slight firmness and fine grain of tannin sweeps across the palate. A persistent line of flavour carries, seemingly perpetually. Haunting - a word I wanted to introduce, save for the fact I'd already done so. 93/94
