Josef Chromy OAM escaped from war torn Czechoslovakia as a penniless 19 year old in 1950, he fled across minefields, evading soldiers and killer dogs, ultimately finding a new home in the lucky country. Chromy has been a long standing principal in the Tasmanian food and wine industry, he established Tasmania's leading brands, including Bay of Fires, Jansz, Heemskerk and Tamar Ridge. At 76 years young, he launched his namesake label, planting one of the apple isle's most stately vineyards and gazetting Tasmania's most compellingly stylish range of wines. Chromy's sensational vintages are as conspicuous for the uniqueness of their character as they are for their sublime and articulate charm.

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance.

About 1½ hours drive north from Adelaide lies the beautiful Polish Hill River district of Valley Clare. The area is blessed with a climate that's ideal for wine growing, a combination of consistently good winter rains, hot summers tempered by cool nights and long ripening period. Paulett's vineyards are at altitudes of 480 to 510 metres and face east. Soils tend from shallow red and grey loams over slate blue stone substrata and occasionally well structured red clays. There are five separate sites from which to draw Riesling. Grapes are crushed, the first runs are cold settled and the clear juices fermented at an even rate over the course of two or three weeks to capture and retain the essence of Polish Hill River Riesling.
Pale straw with light green hues. Elegant floral bouquet with tropicals and citrus hints driven by wonderful lime. Elegant and restrained palate, citrus and lime flavours with a wonderful spine of mineral like acid adding great balance, length and finish. Paulett will show lovely secondary aged characters of toast and honey as it continues to evolve.
