About

The cool climate of Tasmania makes it perfect for producing long ripening and botrytis-affected dessert wines.

The 2015 Josef Chromy is an excellent version of this classic wine style. The acidity from the Riesling fruit grown in this climate keeps the wine feeling fresh and frisky.

With 95 points from James Halliday this wine inspired him to write: “Tasmania does these wines so well it must give any German winemakers who taste them a shiver down their spine.” which is no small praise.

This is right on point for style and price. You simply can’t go wrong.

What It Tastes Like

95 points. “Tasmania does these wines so well it must give any German winemakers who taste them a shiver down their spine. This riesling has 170g/l of residual sugar, but it also has intense lime juice fruit and electric acidity. There will also be more complexity down the track.”
