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. They divide the industry press and excite all adherents of engaging, eloquent & decidedly provocative Tasmanian.. Tasty treats from the apple isle»

Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc Malbec Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Inspired by the great Crus of Bordeaux, the aim is to build complexity within a single vineyard wine, to allow the fruit to shine, as complemented by the finest oak, a Cabernet of profound structure, polish and finesse. The inclusion of small portions Merlot and Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, are treated to a regimen of cutting edge and old world vinification techniques. Fraser Gallop's superlative Cabernet vines are the highly regarded Houghton clone, sourced off unirrigated blocks yielding fruit with a massive concentration of flavours.

Fruit is hand picked, destemmed with minimal crushing and chilled to 8C for three days cold soak in closed fermenters. The wine was pumped over daily using a turbopiguer, allowing better homogenisation and extraction without damaging the berries. One batch is pressed off skins early to complete fermentation in oak, another is pressed off just after fermentation, a further component is pressed off just after fermentation and treated to macro oxidation for five days, another is left on skins for thirty five days. Each technique contributes something unique. The wines are transferred to French oak for malolactic and racked twice over the next year and a half, topped up every four weeks before assemblage.
Deep crimson colour with rich hues. Fraser Gallop shows a remarkable complex array of aromas of black cherry, dark fruits, bitter chocolate, forest floor earthiness and pomegranate molasses richness. Layers and layers of flavour provide for a seamless palate. Tannins are quite fine and chalky, providing great structure for aging. A wine of richness and elegance.
