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.
This Pinot Gris is harvested quite ripe in order to gain rich flavours and texture. The bunches are gently destemmed without crushing and the juice pressed directly to stainless steel tanks. The fermentation is carried out with a relatively neutral yeast to showcase the varietal characters.
2017 Review: Pale colour. Fresh pear nose, clean and light, the palate having more weight and intensity than most of its kind. Concentrated pear-like flavour. Balanced, long and clean, with a refreshing aftertaste. Persistence plus. Drink: 2018 to 2022; Price: $30.00; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
