2017 Josef Chromy Pinot Gris
Colour: Pale straw with light golden hues.
Aroma: Ripe juicy pear and yellow peach fruit aromas with hints of almond and honeydew melon.
Palate: A rich and full, textural palate with fruit flavours of juicy pear and ripe melon with subtle traces of citrus. The classic Tasmanian cool-climate acidity balances the wine, and gives focus and length to the generous fruit flavours.
Grapes: 100% Pinot Gris sourced from our estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania.
Winemaking: Harvesting was undertaken during the night to keep the fruit cool, and ensure the retention of the fresh aromatics. The grapes were gently pressed off skins. Utilising a slow fermenting yeast, the long ferment allowed for enhanced aromatics and increased complexity, which was allowed to further develop through extended lees contact post fermentation. The wine was bottled under screwcap to retain freshness.
