Josef Chromy is a post war success story, having fled his war torn Czech village in 1950 as a penniless 20 year old. Over the years, Josef built an empire in Tasmania with a chain of butcher shops and abattoirs. In 1994, his company diversified into the wine industry, acquiring Heemskirk, Rochecombe and Buchannan Vineyards. He later established Tamar Ridge. He has since sold these vineyards to focus on the Josef Chromy Estate, located south of Launceston.

Bright crimson colour with mauve hue. Medium body. Perfumed nose of violet, followed by spice and dark cherry with a hint of anise as an end note. Excellent length, displaying strong varietal character. Fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste of spice, black cherry and anise.
