Josef Chromy is a true success story based on hard work, experience and a deep-seated commitment to creating quality wine. Since arriving as a refugee from Soviet-occupied Czechoslovakia, he has been the driving force behind the Tasmanian wine scene.

He was a major investor in the early days of Tasmanian winemaking and has been involved with many of the island's leading wineries, including Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge Wines.

At 76, when others think of retiring, Josef achieved his life-long dream of establishing a winery under his own name. In just a few short years, he has made a remarkable impact on wine lovers and critics alike: his wines have been awarded over 14 trophies and 170 medals which make Josef Chromy one of the most successful winery launches in Australian history.

Vinification
Grapes are hand-picked and gently whole bunch pressed to retain floral aromatics. Primary fermentation was carried out in stainless-steel tanks utilising a Champagne yeast. The wine was then stabilised and re-inoculated prior to bottle fermentation. Following a minimum of 12 months on yeast lees to build subtle complexity, the wine is disgorged in conjunction with a light dosage to obtain wine balance.

Tasting Notes
Pale gold with green hues and fine mousse. Lifted floral aromatics of honeysuckle and white peach. Crunchy granny smith apple, with hints of apricot jam and white pear. The off-dry juiciness combines with subtle bottle-ferment complexity and lively acid.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
