Ninth Island, although often shrouded by ocean mists, is visible from our vineyards in northern Tasmania. The island is a wildlife refuge for penguins and a vast array of native birdlife, while the waters surrounding it play host to a variety of sea life including dolphins and seals.
The island’s name was chosen for our range of wines which capture the distinctive cool climate flavours of Tasmania. It is our winemaking philosophy to preserve the crisp, fragrant, fresh fruit flavours and aromas in our Ninth Island wines. These 100% estate grown and produced wines are suited to early consumption.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale golden straw, with a slight coppery hue.
Gently lifted bouquet of rose petal and pot pourri with lush exotic tropical fruits, dried banana chips, Turkish delight and the soft hints of musk talc and sweet Asian spice.
A lush full-bodied palate, flavour reminiscent of freshly squeezed exotic tropical fruits; paw-paw, mango, banana passion fruit, all with the soft and elegant alluring flavours of a ripe tropical punch that finishes lively and fresh with zingy crisp acid and lingering fruit.
Will drink well to 2013, with likely best year 2012.
