(2017) Cool, lightly creamy and oatmeally, with plenty of crisp apple acidity, the oak very deftly handled in a balanced and appealing wine. Rounded and textural, with enough peachy ripeness, but a feeling of natural acid balance.
(2017) Ripe apple and citrus, A weighty and gently creamy character, little yeasty notes. Equally appealing palate, weight without being ponderous and good acids to tension the finish.
(2017) Fine mineral and flint nose, the waxed lime finesse is lively in a beautifully developed wine. Limey and waxy on the palate, with a tense mineral acidity and gentle grip.
(2017) Flinty, sulphide note, gives an Epsom salty edge, broadening to a ripe fruitiness. Pleasing palate, just a hint of sugar to soften the picture with quite sweet, peachy fruit moving into a pithy grapefruit finish. Price and stockist quoted at time of review is for the 2015 vintage.
(2017) Produced by Josef Chromy on contract. A little lanolin note, softer and less sharply defined, the palate balancing nicely between salty acids and a small hint of sweetness.
(2017) From the warmer east coast. Nice waxy and herbal quality, a touch tanky and pear-droppy from fermentation at this stage which makes it more difficult to really assess. A dry, citrus pithy quality, a touch of mineral salts, very tangy and may well be worth a higher score. 
(2017) From the southern Derwent Valley, inland north of Hobart and vineyards at altitude. A refined mineral quality, some talcum notes, tight and elegantly aromatic, with a pithy quality to the fruit, and a juiciness of citrus pulp. Long and tight, a real tight apple finish.
(2017) What a nice hint of gently beeswaxy development here, rosy red apple fruit, a lovely hint of nectarine ripeness and juiciness, a hint of smoky minerals in a lovely, very approachable wine.
(2017) This has a touch of honey too, but mostly sherbetty and bright with that waxiness. A big, dry,  uncompromising palate,  with streaking acidity, chalky and citrussy, that pushes through beautifully: not aggressive, but very firm. Note: stockist and price are for the 2015 vintage at time of review.
(2017) Named after the village Josef grew up in, top of the range made from eight  rows of their best block in certain years. Delightful, light honey but also a bit of skinny grip, and attractive beeswax and florals. In the mouth a delicious dry apple core and wax, but the long, focused salt and gently smoky minerals joins the citrus and merest hint of sweetness in the finish.
