Natalie's Score: 92/100

Deep and smoky Australian Pinot Noir from the cool climate island of Tasmania. This bottling from Josef Chromy is juicy, racy and mouth-watering as red cherries dance across your mouth, waking up on your senses in a pure Aussie fruit sensation. This isn’t earthy or spicy: it’s sunny and tasty and complex. Finishes long and smooth with black cherry and pepper. Great concentration and focus of flavour. Try this Pinot Noir with roast turkey.

Pinot Noir food pairings: salmon steaks, pork, spaghetti Bolognese, veal, roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A Pinot Noir from Tasmania, Australia with a fragrant nose of tart cherry, milk chocolate and hint of smoke. Tart cherry, smoke, lots of milk chocolate, baking spice and forest floor on the palate. Extra dry with good acidity and a long spicy tart finish.
Tasted July 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A cool climate pinot with loads of earthy funk. Aromas are intriguing and include red cherry, tomato leaf/basil note, smokey minerality, and mint. The flavours on the palate are dominated by cranberry and mint (strong herbaceous note). This Tasmanian Pinot Noir is light-med bodied with high acidity and moderate tannins. Enjoy with Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
This is a lovely Pinot Noir from cool-climate Tasmania. Australia is a big continent and Tasmania is located about 240 kilometres south from the warmest part of the Australian continent, Western Australia. Tasmania actually has four distinct seasons, and as one goes farther south in the southern hemisphere, it becomes cooler, as a result Tasmania is becoming increasingly well-known for its vibrant Pinot Noir. - Community Wine Reviews
