2016 Josef Chromy Riesling
Colour: Pale straw with light green hues
Aroma: Floral aromatics of fresh lime blossom with hints of rose and subtle white fruits.
Palate: Juicy lime and fresh lemon curd combine with slaty mineral characters. The long, crisp citrus palate is balanced by gentle chalky texture and the natural cool climate acidity, creating a wine of length and structure.
Grapes: 100% Riesling sourced from our estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania.
Winemaking: Our Riesling is hand-picked and transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Pressing commences as soon as the grapes arrive and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks, with only the free-run juice retained. Racked from solids after 2 days, it is then fermented at cool temperatures with a neutral yeast to showcase varietal characters. Bottled under screwcap, to enable the wine to be enjoyed at its optimum.
Cellaring: Due to our naturally high acid levels in our Rieslings, they have great cellaring potential. With further cellaring this wine will develop a richer palate and honeyed toasty flavours. Optimum cellaring to 2026.
