Josef Chromy Pepik Sekt NV - Oct 2018 Decanter review
Josef Chromy has been instrumental to the Tasmanian food and wine industry, having owned and developed some of Tasmania’s leading wineries including Rochecombe (now Bay of Fires), Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge. Joe acknowledges Tasmania as the regional hero in this development: "I came here with nothing but hope and ambition over 50 years ago. Tasmanians welcomed me and, with their help, I have been rewarded for the challenges and risks I have taken in the wine industry”.
At 76, when most people would be thinking about easing up, Joe launched Josef Chromy Wines in December 2007. In just a few years, Josef Chromy Wines has made an impressive impact on the Australian wine industry.
An elegant, easy-drinking sparkling with lifted floral aromatics. The palate exhibits crunchy green apple and fresh pear flavours that combine beautifully with the creaminess and complexity from lees contact and bottle fermentation.
