Josef Chromy Wines

2013 Josef Chromy Vintage Sparkling

2013 Josef Chromy Vintage Sparkling

Aroma
Lively grape, ripe citrus and honeysuckle on the nose which also reveals subtle hints of quince, peach and red apple skin.

Palate
This is a beautifully crafted Blanc de Noir that is still fresh with a long life ahead. Sweet, toasted nuts and brioche notes on the mid palate with a very long finish. The acidity is rounded by the long lees aging and forms the backbone of this balanced, elegant, complex sparkling.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Handpicked grapes are whole bunch pressed and the free run juices are assembled prior to fermentation. Primary fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks with a neutral yeast strain, and no malolactic fermentation, to ensure the retention of the acidity for long term ageing. The wine is then stabilised prior to re-inoculation with the same yeast strain for bottle fermentation. The wine is aged in bottle with its yeast lees for 4 years prior to disgorging to aid texture development and complexity. A light dosage is employed to retain crispness and length.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy as an aperitif or match with roasted duck, pan seared trout and lightly grilled lamb
Other Notes
After carefully cellaring with yeast lees for 4 years prior to disgorging this wine can be enjoyed now as a fresh and lively sparkling but further bottle age will reward those who enjoy the complex toasty characters developed by further ageing.
