Josef Chromy Riesling 2021
92 POINT RATED JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION TASSIE RIESLING FROM JOSEF CHROMY WINES
- ★★★★★ ★★★★★ 0 out of 5 stars.
Pale straw with light green hues. A classic talc and kaffir lime nose complemented by mandarin blossom and honeysuckle. A textural wine made in a drier style. Ripe citrus and warm pip fruit, this wine offers body and then allows balanced acidity to cleanse and refresh the palate. Youthful notes of natural minerality and zesty, complex citrus will build into honeyed tones with age, while retaining freshness and length on the finish.
92 Point Rated - Tyson Stelzer James Halliday Wine Companion
"Hand-picked estate and purchased fruit; 14 and 23yo vines; cool fermented. This is a very tightly coiled and enduring vintage for Chromy, giving birth to a steely riesling that unites tense Tasmanian acid drive with judiciously gauged phenolic bite, building a finish of considerable scaffolding. Energetic kaffir lime and wild lemon meet Granny Smith apple and an exotic side of guava and white pepper. Less than 2g/L RS is ambitious for such a rigid chassis, and it will blossom with bottle age to soften its edges."
Picked in the early morning before forecast heavy rain and pressed while cold. The free run juice was retained, cold settled and cool fermented in 4 separate batches. Left on fluffy lees post ferment until natural settling was completed. Batches were selectively blended to ensure balance of flavour, texture and a complex citrus profile.
