2015 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir
Colour: Red with bright purple hues.
Aroma: Intense lifted nose of red cherries and wild forest fruit with hints of toasted oak and spice.
Palate: Lifted bright, sweet wild berries and sour cherries with hints of cardamom 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% Tasmanian Pinot Noir sourced from our Estate Vineyard located at Relbia.
Winemaking: Hand-picked Pinot Noir is gently destemmed and placed in small batch open top fermenters with approximately 25% whole bunches. Early regular rémontage (pump-over) and pigéage (plunging) 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 12 months prior to bottling.
Cellaring: Optimum cellaring to 2023.
