Region Northern Tasmania

Cool to cold climate/Elevation 15-200m The arrival of Andrew Pirie and the planting of vineyards around Pipers Brook near Launceston in Tasmania’s north really kicked off northern Tasmania’s wine industry. The vineyards are all located in cool to cold maritime areas. The warmest and sunniest part of the island is in the north. At Pipers Brook most of the vineyards are located on slopes at elevations of around 100 to 140m on basalt-derived gravelly soils with relatively high iron content. Pipers Brook vineyards are close spaced on north-facing vineyards but quite exposed to wind. Riesling has thrived, while Chardonnay and Bordeaux varieties are a mixed bag, and Pinot Noir is showing great potential. Mesoclimate and individual sites differ markedly around Tasmania. The Tamar Valley, close to Pipers Brook, is estuarine influenced. In terms of wine investment, Tasmania has a very small presence.

The Tamar Valley, close to Pipers Brook, is estuarine influenced. In terms of wine investment, Tasmania has a very small presence. Despite a strong commitment by BRL Hardy in sparkling wine production and a few relatively large-scale ventures, NorthernTasmania has still to find its feet. This is illustrated by the change of ownership of several enterprises – Pipers Brook being the most recent. Riesling Riesling has shown the most promise in this marginal wine-growing region. They have pronounced limey aromas with a touch of dried herb/spice nuances, fine acidity and plenty of concentration and length. Vintage is important Chardonnay Chardonnay has struggled. The climate is extremely marginal and botrytis seems to be a perennial problem in some vineyards. Producers are able to make leaner Burgundian styles, but many seem to have a herbal edge to them. Sparkling wine producers (specifically Hardys and Domaine Chandon) value the fruit highly, which is where its ultra-fine future probably lies in the medium term. Pipers Brook Chardonnay was once one of Australia’s leading wines, but is now lost in a sea of Australian Chardonnays. However it can only get better! Pinot Noir Some good expressions of Pinot Noir are produced in these parts. Pipers Brook and Tamar Ridge are making Burgundian styles, although vintage is an important consideration.

Winery JOSEF CHROMY

Josef Chromy

Czechoslovakian born Josef Chromy fled his war torn home to Tasmania, setting up the successful Blue Ribbon Meat products. After selling that venture, he went on to establish and re-invigorate wineries and vineyards in Northern Tasmania, including the prestigious sites of Heemskerk and Rochecombe and Tamar Valley Wines before setting up Josef Chromy Wines. The winery is found just South of Launceston in Relbia, Northern Tasmania producing high quality cool climate fruit from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. Josef Chromy has three ranges; the everyday drinking fruit driven Pepik, Josef Chromy Reserve Range, highlighting individual site expression and Zdar featuring limited wines from outstanding sites in exceptional vintages.
