expert reviews about
2015 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir
Nick Stock (2013 Vintage) says
The quality on offer here is striking, marrying the best of attractive ripe red and dark fruit characters with earthy spice and more savoury complexity, some blue fruits too, really engaging. The palate is wrapped together with fine even tannin and holds a wealth of perfectly ripe sweet cherry and mulberry flavoured fruit flesh. Fine texture, long and precise, it frames the finish up beautifully, leaving a gently toasty, precise and juicy impression. Drink in 2016.Tasting Report: Tasmanian Pinot Noir June 25th, 2014.
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
The features of this wine are an insight into its creator, with savoury 'European' notes a dominant feature; dark plums, cold tea, Asian spices and a damp forest floor on the bouquet lead to a silky and alluring palate, where the quite substantial tannins lurk in waiting, to reveal an extremely long and expansive conclusion.To 2020Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition

This has a bright, ripe and yet lilting charm to the fruit aromas on the nose, with some ripe cherries and red fruits, a little plum too, some leafy nuances and sweet spicy oak in the mix _ a complex and engaging young Pinot Noir. The palate s fine tannins stretch the entire length and breadth with both energy and verve, carrying ripe and precise red fruit flavours long and even, lifting bright and juicy through the finish. Lovely poise and balance here.2015Good Wine Guide
