Josef Chromy 2017 Brut Rosé Finesse


This was one of the affordable stars of the recent Effervesence sparkling wine festival in northern Tasmania; a pinot-dominant rosé blend with plenty of substance that offers a whole lot of drinking pleasure. Think red currant, berry and apple flavours with a clean, brisk finish. A blend of fruit sourced from the estate vineyard at Relbia - near Launceston Airport - this comprises 88.5% pinot noir and 11.5% chardonnay. There is no malolactic fermentation to ensure the retention of the acidity for potential long-term aging. Four years on yeast lees have built complexity so that this has enough power and personality to match most white meat dishes. Pop by and enjoy a bottle on site if you get the chance. It is a lovely setting. $50.
