2020 Josef Chromy Sally Field Blend
A true field blend from the small display vineyard at the rear of the Josef Chromy Restaurant. Comprising 10 different varieties, the resulting wine is a medium-bodied red and is made from roughly 50% red grapes and 50% white.
Unfined, unfiltered and bottled without additives or preservatives, the nose shows ripe raspberry, red currant and underlying fig and lightly stewed quince. Layers of 5 spice, drying thyme and raw shelled almond add savoury interest.
Ripe wild strawberry and maraschino cherry fills the textured, juicy and full mid palate. Elements of cashew and pistachio nut, white pepper and field mushroom add complexity. The finish carries fleshy ruby grape fruit, raspberry and traditional pine nut biscotti. Fine tannin and acidity throughout.
Can be consumed at room temperature but also suited to light chilling.
Drink now with Peking duck, asparagus with toasted pine nuts, or antipasto.
