Cold cuts, red meats, roasted pork, soft cheeses.
French oak barriques (30% new) for 10 months.
Deep purple-red hue.
Aromas of intense spicy black fruits and French oak.
Intense and brooding, the latent liveliness and freshness overshadowed by the ripe complex black fruit aroma and flavour of the warm ripe vintage. It has a significant tannin profile; they are ripe elegant tannins that will serve the wine well through bottle age.
In 2003 the Croser family planted the first vines on their Maylands Farm, near Parawa at the apex of the Fleurieu Peninsula, half way between Victor Harbor and Cape Jervis. There are no other vineyards within 10 kilometres of this unique, very cool, foggy site, just 8 kilometres from the Great Southern Ocean. The Foggy Hill Vineyard is 4 hectares of close spaced (1.5m x 1.5m) Dijon clone Pinot Noir on root stocks at 350m above sea level, planted on a north facing slope of sandy loam and clay over the 67 million year old laterite parent rock. The 2016 Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir is defined by the cool maritime site at Parawa and by the extraordinary warmth of the 2016 vintage.
