2014 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir
Colour: Red with bright purple hues
Aroma: Intense lifted nose of red cherries and wild forest fruit with hints of bracken and spice
Palate: Lifted bright, sweet wild berries and sour cherries with hints of white pepper and clove. The palate is finely structured with silky tannins and rich dark chocolate that leads to a long focused finish. Restrained oak is well integrated and provides support for the bright primary fruit.
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir sourced from our Estate Vineyard located at Relbia in Northern Tasmania.
Winemaking: Hand-picked Pinot Noir is gently destemmed and placed in small batch open top fermenters with approximately 25% whole bunches. Regular plunging (punch-down or pigéage) is used to immerse the skins and extract colour and tannin as gently as possible. After pressing the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French Oak barriques and is matured in oak for 11 months prior to bottling.
Cellaring: Optimum cellaring to 2022.
