Josef Chromy Zdar Tasmania Riesling

Zdar is Czech for “things worked out well” and it certainly lives up to its name in 2008. Testimony to the longevity of Tasmanian riesling, this wine holds considerable structural energy in its backbone of finely honed acidity, while building all the complexity of honey, glace apricot, mixed spice and marmalade. It’s beginning to round out beautifully, yet holds exceptional persistence and stamina, promising some years yet. $30 at Trio Wine.
