Josef Chromy Botrytis Riesling 375ml
Launceston
Available by the dozen
Botrytis affected Riesling from the Chromy estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania. The Botrytis infection is carefully monitored and the grapes are picked when the balance between delicate floral and citrus characters and the richer marmalade flavours of Botrytis is optimum. Weather conditions permitting, Chromy's closely husbanded vines yield limited harvests of Noble Rot botrytis Cinerea, drying the grapes as they hang on the vine, concentrating natural sugars, developing the most exciting perfumes and divine flavours.

Fruit reception begins with a vibrating hopper that gently shakes the grapes into the destemmer, which has a smooth plastic cage in order not to break any berries. Grapes are gently pressed and the juices are vinified at low temperatures to retain varietal character. Fermentation is arrested at a low alcohol level to achieve a fully integrated wine that retains fresh Riesling character.
 
Deep golden yellow. Delicate floral and citrus, rich orange peel characters of Botrytis. A long crisp palate of sweet honey, preserved lemon and ripe citrus flavours. Varietal Riesling characters are still apparent and meld with Botrytis flavours to create a crisp style of dessert wine with a lingering taste and refreshing finish. Josef Chromy will develop rich palate weight and more honeyed characters. Match with desserts, sorbets or gateaux.

Pale green straw hue. White nectarine nose with hints of toasted crushed nuts, softened by the creaminess of barrel stirring. Fleshy white fruits make immediate impact onto the palate, high acidity balancing to give length and persistence. French oak adds support to the fruit and enriches the structure. A match to full flavoured fish and rich poultry dishes, especially white roasts.

From penniless immigrant to a leading entrepreneur in the Tasmanian wine, beef and property development industries, Josef Chromy OAM has certainly come a long way

Josef found a job with Goliath cement and asbestos sheeting factory at Railton in northwestern Tasmania. His first business venture as a butcher failed but his second butcher shop in Burnie flourished. Over the decades he continued to expand his business. In 1982 he acquired the Huttons abattoir and smallgoods ham and bacon business in Tasmania which gave him a large increase in market share. In 1992 Josef was named Tasmanian Executive of the year having been the major contributor to the rationalisation of seven export works to two.

Josef Chromy

Joe had 30 years experience in creating scale, quality, yield and new markets and wasn’t about to waste it. The wine industry in Tasmania, like the meat industry before it, was undergoing rationalisation where many participants were undercapitalised and unable to achieve the economies of scale necessary to take full advantage of markets and production. Joe was not a wine connoisseur but his palate had come to appreciate the distinctive quality of wines made from cool climate grapes. Sparkling wines made in Tasmania shine when given the right care and attention.

In 1994 Josef waded into the Tasmanian Wine Industry, buying Heemskerk, Rochecombe and Buchanan Vineyards as well as establishing a completely new vineyard at Kayena. The Jansz sparkling wine was part of the acquisitions. Josef’s Heemskerk Wine Group effectively became the second major participant in the industry in Tasmania, with production from the famous Pipers Brook Vineyards.

In 1997 Josef was awarded the Medal of the Order Of Australia. 1997 also saw the Heemskerk Wine Group’s Chardonnay awarded Winestate’s “Chardonnay of the Year”, beating 841 Chardonnay’s from Australia and New Zealand. Again the same year, President Bill Clinton sipped Jansz sparkling throughout the entire evening at a dinner whilst visiting Australia.

In March 2000 Josef Chromy experienced one of the most memorable moments in his life when he had the privilege to lunch with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at a table of ten during her visit to Tasmania. In 2003 Joe Chromy sold Tamar Ridge Wines to Tasmania’s largest company Gunns Limited. Not long afterwards, Josef acquired Glenwood Vineyard on the southern outskirts of Launceston at Relbia. Joe knew the potential of this site, the vineyard overlooked picturesque small lakes and out over White Hills to Ben Lomond. Josef has built a new, state of the art winery at the base of the vineyard at Relbia. The clean, modern, minimalist exterior provides a home for some of the best winemaking equipment available. Wines produced under the Josef Chromy Range showcase the varietal expression of the cool climate vineyard site.

Fruit reception begins with a vibrating hopper that gently shakes the grapes into the destemmer, which has a smooth plastic cage in order not to break any berries. The grapes are pumped into the press through a peristaltic pump, using the same gentle technology that transfers live fish or pumps blood during heart bypass surgery. A high tech German press enables juice extraction at low pressures, giving more delicate aromatic juices. Elegant, subtle and complex, the resultant wines reward cellaring and provide great accompaniment to food now.

All Pinot Noir is fermented in small batch open top fermenters and a pneumatic plunging device, co-developed by Josef, is used to gently plunge the cap and manage the extraction of colour and tannin during the fermentation. All the equipment and processes in the winery are designed to respect the delicate varietal flavours of the high quality, cool-climate Tasmanian fruit.
