Mission Briefing

Codename:

Peppy Pepik

We return to Tasmania today, to Josef Chromy Wines - and their complex, fragrant, and delectable Josef Chromy Wines 2013 Pepik Tasmania Pinot Noir. This is the winery’s flagship red wine, and their most prized. Today only, we have a very special price for you on what are the final cases of this wine in the USA.

South of Melbourne, Australia, in the Tasman Sea, the island state of Tasmania makes some of the most interesting Pinot Noir that the wine world hardly even knows about. Like wine growing regions in Europe, Tasmania has a cool climate and the potential to make distinctly different wines than in the rest of Australia. The area grows primarily Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.

On the nose, this wine shows off loads of aromas. In the lead, you’ll find dried wild mushroom, cassis, and black cherry. These are followed by dark spice, clay pot, red licorice, bramble and a hint of black tea. After inhaling this wine, sampling its complex nose, this wine surprised us on the palate, with bright flavors of cherry, boysenberry, dried mission fig up front, followed by clay pot, raisin, dark spice, and bramble, with a hint of cardamom.

We love this tasty, perfect for winter entertaining Pinot and we offer it to you with our heartiest recommendation. If you’re looking for something outside of our usual California fare, you’ll adore this wine as much as we do.

Cheers!

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Vinous - ”Limpid red. 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.”
