Tapanappa Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir, Fleurieu Peninsula 2014, $55
Less than half the normal grape yield led to a concentrated, powerful wine with sappy, spicy complexities plus cherry, vanilla and chocolate nuances. Soft, rich and ripe, as well as undeniably pinoty. Superb wine. (13.7 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
