Wineries List: J Wines in Tasmania
Smart wine this one. A smart wine from a producer that is continuing to build it's reputation for quality Tasmanian booze at very fair prices. Indeed this might be their best wine to date - a medium to full bodied Pinot Noir that carries plenty of the deeper richer fleshy flavours of Northern Tasmania, but still with that all important Tasmanian acidity. Yes. Tasty Pinot indeed.
If you're a Tasmanian winery and you don't have a sparkling these days then you're not trying hard enough really. The crew at Josef Chromy thankfully are trying hard enough (clearly) which brings us this vintage sparkling, a serious bubbly made with loads of acidity and power to burn. It's a sparkling to bring out and serve to people who only drink French bubbles.
A complex, full bodied cool climate Chardonnay. Barrel fermentation in French barriques gives texture and complexity to the concentrated citrus and white peach flavours.
It's time to get wine nerd for a second. Don't worry it won't be hard, just bear with me for a second. There is an important number to be looked at when tasting this wine. It's called the 'TA' and stands for Total Acidity which is, unsurprisingly, a measure of the acidity in a wine. What's relevant in this case is just how high that figure is (7.4) which means that this wine has more than a little acidity in it. Now lots of acidity is not always a good thing but in a Chardonnay like this it means a crisp and refreshing white wine, particularly if the fruit is up to the task. Needless to say it is and this is one rather delicious modern Chardonnay in a very tasty style. Good indeed.
Colour: Pale yellow with a green tinge Aroma: Classic cool climate nose – intense lime and citrus characters with delicate mineral notes. Palate: The palate exhibits fresh lime and citrus with crisp mineral characters that gives the wine elegance with persistence, length and structure aided by the natural cool climate acidity. Suggestions: Fresh seafood, especially oysters and scallops
Colour: Pale straw Aroma: Complex, apple, citrus and white stone fruit notes. Palate Fruit driven Chardonnay exhibiting primary fruit characters of green apple and melon leading to a soft yet crisp clean palate of citrus, guava and grapefruit flavours balanced by natural acidity. Serving Suggestions: Full flavoured fish and white meat Josef Chromy Awards and Accolades Bronze medal, 2012 Tasmanian Wine Show
Appearance: Bright vibrant red. Nose: Lifted sweet and sour cherry nose with soft chocolate oak. Palate: A soft, balanced palate of dark plum with rounded tannins and subtle spicy tones. Food: Spicy tomato pastas or light red meats.
Colour: Pale straw hues Aroma: Fresh pear juice and ripe citrus Palate: Crisp, zesty flavours of ripe pear with hints of ‘ sur lie’ complexity and cinnamon. The palate is crisp and focused with texture and a beautifully balanced lingering zesty finish. Serving Suggestions: Antipasto, Risotto, Calamari, Quiche.
Super dry Riesling this one. Bone dry. Dry enough that suddenly you want to drink more of it just to keep hydrated. What is so attractive about this wine though is that it's not hard - just refreshing. Like slightly acidic rainwater (though much more likely to get you drunk). Best drunk icy cold on a very hot day.
The Pepik range is the easy drinking line from Josef Chromy, intended to be drunk before the more classic 'estate' wines come around. This too is a light, fresh and rather approachable wine, freshened up thanks to early picking and fermentation in tanks rather than barrels. Drink young and enjoy the Chardonnay freshness.
Pepik is the traditional informal name given to men named Josef in the Czech Republic. Fittingly this is an informal sort of Pinot Noir, one made with bright fruit and freshness first and foremost and then structure just behind. So much simple Pinot joy here.
Abundance. That's the word to use with a wine like this, a Pinot Gris with richness and texture built by picking the grapes ripe and then leaving a little grape sugar for balance. If you're looking for a wine of texture look no further.
It's something of an icon now is the Jansz NV, with it's reputation forged over the last decade with a succession of consistently good bubblies at entirely reasonable prices. In fact - along with Chandon NV and the Sir James Vintage - you could argue that it was Jansz that helped bring seriously made sparkling back into the mainstream again. What makes this a winner is that it's just so well made. They say that the secret to sparkling wine is all in the blend (heck the French sparkling winemakers are called 'chefs after all) and this is one artfully blended wine. Dry, crisp, long and vibrant with lots of Champagne-esque dry yeasty flavour.
We love a good Sparkling Rosé here at Cracka, as it offers all the crispness and bubbly fun of traditional sparkling, but in a much pinker (and arguably more interesting) form. In fact, Rosé Champagne is actually held in higher esteem than more traditional styles, purely because they are so much harder to get right. This version from Jansz though gets it very right, with dry and refreshing flavours all served in a rich, slightly strawberry edged style that is very enjoyable indeed.
Pretty. That's the best way to describe this wine, a pink wine, with a pink label, that should be drunk whilst wearing pink. Thankfully it's not all frivolity though for there is a serious bone in this wines body. Still, no doubting the joyous open sort of style here.
The 'entry level' bubbly from Josef Chromy but no less of a serious wine, this nails the balance between crispness and generosity pretty well, showing a fraction more grapefruit fruit characters than the vintage version but also with a more affable and open palate too. Net result is a bubbly that everyone will like, at a rather smart price.
This is a wine of finesse and great length from a superb vintage. Pale straw with golden tints, this late disgorged wine displays a lifted complex nose, still showing bright citrus and strawberry fruits but enriched by the characteristics of long ageing on yeast. Truffles, brioche and nougat aromas fill the glass, coupled with honeysuckle and seaspray. The palate is elegant and layered showing all the hallmarks of great Tasmanian Sparkling. Ripe lemon and honeysuckle from the Chardonnay coupled with luscious Turkish delight and rose petals of the Pinot Noir. Extended yeast ageing gives rich layers of nougat, shortbread, truffles and cream, whilst the natural acidity gives the wine balance...

This wine is rosewater, pale pink in colour with an intense, lifted nose, showing the power and elegance of Jansz Pinot Noir. The aromas are of rosewater, strawberries, sea spray and truffles; coupled with the yeast influence of toasted brioche and nougat. A wonderfully complex sparkling wine on the palate, in which full fruit flavours of Turkish delight, rose petals and fresh strawberries are married with cream, truffles, spice and seaspray. The power of the Tasmanian fruit is balanced by mouth-watering natural acidity delivering great structure, finesse and wonderful length.

The wine is pale gold in colour with a very fine persistent bead. The nose is wonderfully complex; with lifted savoury notes of sea spray and lanolin, balanced with those of ripe lemons and delicate strawberries. The Five years of yeast aging has enriched the nose with aromas of brioche, shortbread and cream. The palate is balanced. It flaunts powerful yet elegant fruit flavours, showing honeysuckle, rose petals and strawberry juxtaposed with complex notes of oyster shell and truffle. The result is a layered and textural wine that can only be achieved through extended aging on yeast. The natural acidity typical of this vineyard provides elegance and longevity to this wine.
