Ninth Island, although often shrouded by ocean mists, is visible from our vineyards in northern Tasmania. The island name has been used for our range of fresh, early drinking style wines that capture the distinctive cool-climate flavours and nature of Tasmania.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very bright, lemon yellow, with a hint of lime.
Fragrant, lifted aromas of freshly cut white peach, floral apple blossom, lemon and lime peel fruits, with the subtle hints of mineral quartz and talc.
The palate is clean, fresh and vibrant with longer more stream-lined acid to balance the harmony between fruit flavour richness and a palate cleaning finish. The fruit is concentrated, complex and refreshing, offering a profile of minerals, white peach, apples, lemon and lime peel fruits, all tightly gathered together on the palate with the seamless fresh crisp acid and lingering tropical fruits.
Drink now to 2016. Likely best years 2013 and 2014.
This Chardonnay is made for your enjoyment, and yet versatile enough to match with an array of foods; Caesar salad; mussels with tomato and saffron sauce; grilled white fleshed fish, and other sea food dishes. Fettuccine carbonara and Mediterranean style dishes.
