Josef Chromy OAM has been instrumental to the Tasmanian food and wine industry having owned and developed some of Tasmania’s leading wineries including Rochecombe (now Bay of Fires), Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge. You’ll still find Joe out inspecting the vineyard and working with the winemaking team, as he believes this is the best way to keep tabs on what is happening in the business.
Bright vibrant red. Lifted sweet and sour cherry nose with soft chocolate oak. A soft, balanced palate of dark plum with rounded tan-nins and subtle spicy tones. 100% Pinot Noir sourced from our estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania. Selected batches of Pinot Noir were hand picked and gently destemmed before ferment. Gentle plunging and pump-over techniques ensure retention of bright fresh fruit characters. Light maturation in French Oak barriques lends structure without overpowering the fruit. Screwcapped to enable the wine to be enjoyed at it’s optimum.
Pepik has always been outstanding value, though the quality has varied at time, but it has shot up the quality stakes in 2016 despite the higher cropping year. One of those great buy-value buys, kind of things. Great every day drinking, with finer pinot noir DNA writ large. A new label design has emerged too, not pictured, but similar. Smells fantastic. Red cherry, kirsch, pepper and struck match. The pinot anchor dropped, loaded with flavoursome, cherry sweetness, spicy spice (pepper etc), sinewy acidity and tannin, a touch of savouriness. It’s fruit driven but firm, pretty darn good, and serious. Like this. Tasted: Aug 17; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2022; Rated: 92 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
