2017 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir
Wine Club discount applies
Colour: Pale garnet.
Aroma: Subtle nose of concentrated red berry fruits with hints of spice.
Palate: The palate is full with vibrant cherry and raspberry flavours generously textured with sweet red fruit, savoury cinnamon spice and subtle oak. Refreshing acidity is followed by a long finish. Fine grain tannis.
Grapes: 100% Tasmanian Pinot Noir sourced from our Estate Vineyard at Relbia, northern Tasmania.
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 8 months prior to bottling.
Cellaring: Optimum cellaring to 2021.
