2016 Josef Chromy Estate Pinot Gris
Cracka Value Rating
Winemaker notes: Our Pinot Gris is harvested quite ripe in order to gain rich flavours and texture. The bunches are gently de-stemmed 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.
Colour: Pale straw with golden hues.
Aroma: Ripe juicy pear and white peach fruit aromas, overlay hints of cinnamon, fennel and honey-blossom.
Palate: Full textured and robust, the fruit flavours are dominated by juicy pear and fig, with subtle traces of citrus tart and fresh cut apple. The classic Tasmanian cool-climate acidity balances the wine, and gives focus and length to the generous fruit flavours.
Food pairing notes: Antipasto, Risotto, Calamari, Quiche.
Ageing: Best consumed now to 2019.
