Josef Chromy Pepik Chardonnay

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Hand picked Chardonnay grapes are gently pressed and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tank. Fermentation is started immediately and this is kept cool to retain aromatics. Full juice solids are retained for fermentation to give richness and texture. Stabilisation and clarification is carried out quickly after fermentation in order to get the wine into bottle quickly to retain freshness and zest.

Colour: Pale Straw
Aroma: Lifted fruit notes of white peach, mango with banana and ripe citrus aromas
Palate: A complex textural palate featuring lemon tart, melon and cantaloupe fruit flavours. The green apple acidity provides focus and freshness to the palate.

A little flinty, reduced edge here. This is quite a savoury chardonnay with restrained, chablis-like style to it, sporting aromas of fresh-sliced Granny Smith apples and pears. The palate s crisp and tangy with crunchy acid appeal, an ideal youngdrinking chardonnay, with lime to close.

A highly aromatic bouquet of stone fruit blossom; a long palate follows, the acidity too much for some, but not for me.
