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 (clones 114, 115 and 777) 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.

”Some (15%) whole bunches placed on bottom of fermentation tub, topped with destemmed, crushed must. Inoculated, 16-day fermentation followed by 5 days on skins. Matured 10 months in French barrique. 220 dozen made. The 2020 vintage was cooler than average, a welcome indicator of pinot quality. Elegance and detail go hand in hand here. Chalky in texture, taut in structure indicate it's early days for this pinot, but then you meet the depth of fruit – black cherry, cranberry, pomegranate – and accompanying aromatics and spice, and there is plenty to enjoy right now.”
