Josef Chromy Wines has a state-of-the-art winery at the base of the vineyard at Relbia, just south of Launceston. The modern and minimalist exterior provides a home for some of the best winemaking equipment available. Fruit reception begins with a vibrating hopper that gently shakes the grapes into the destemmer. The grapes are pumped gently into the press through a peristaltic pump, using the same 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. 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. Colour Pale red with vibrant hues. Aroma Lifted sweet berry fruits of raspberry and red mulberry with hints of dark cherry, complex spice and smoky undertones. Palate Light and silky notes of bright red cherries, combine with juicy strawberry and raspberry fruits. The smooth texture is complemented by supple tannins and fresh acidity, creating a wine of purity and finesse. Grapes 100% Pinot Noir sourced from our Estate Vineyard located at Relbia in Northern Tasmania. Winemaking Selected batches of Pinot Noir fruit are gently destemmed and placed in small batch open top fermenters. Gentle plunging and pump over techniques, combined with warm fermentations, ensure the retention of bright fresh fruit characters. After pressing, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in old French oak barriques and stainless steel.

Spicy, energetic and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry and candied rose scents that open up and deepen with aeration. Taut, sappy and subtly sweet on the palate, offering bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors plus a touch of spicecake. In a restrained, elegant style, showing no excess fat. Smooth, sneaky tannins frame the fruit on the persistent, spicy finish.-- Josh Raynolds" 88pts - Wine Enthusiast "Pepik is Chromy’s entry-level Pinot; it represents a relatively affordable introduction to Tasmanian Pinot Noir. Hints of cherry blossom and fine leather add elegant grace notes to tart cherries, while the silky finish is long and crisp."
