Overview

An isle of untouched beauty, only 32 hectares in size and located just 11km off the coast, and although often shrouded by ocean mists is visible from our Pipers Brook vineyards in Northern Tasmania. The Island’s name has been used for our range of fresh, early drinking varietal wines that capture the distinctive cool-climate flavours and nature of Tasmania. Ninth Island is a wildlife haven for both marine and birdlife that choose to take refuge on this pristine coastal environment.

Our heritage label depicts old Hobart Town in 1868, illustrating the Royal Hobart Regatta attended by H.R.H The Duke of Edinburgh. The Regatta is Tasmania’s oldest sporting event and remains the largest aquatic carnival in the Southern Hemisphere.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant pinot noir ruby red, with subtle purple hue and good colour density.

Aroma

Lifted aroma’s of dark cherries, raspberries, sweet cranberries, and fragrant rose petal perfume. These aromas are distinctive to Ninth Island pinot noir, all nicely entwined on the finish with a faint background of mocha/coffee tannins and the under tones of pepper berry spice on the finish.

Palate

A wine made for enjoyment with a beautiful bright lift of sweet berry flavours which stylishly support the palate. Concentrated and long, with the characteristic hallmark of early drinking pinot noir. At first the taste is supple round and delicate, but soon bursts with richness and power as the delicious pinot noir flesh and flavours fill your mouth. A wine that captures your palates attention, Sensual Tasmanian sweet summer berry fruits, velvety fine long textured mouth-feel, all finely balanced by satisfyingly integrated mocha/coffee like tannins with a long captivating finish.

Cellaring Potential

Drink now to 2016. Likely best year 2015

Food Matching

This pinot noir is made for pure enjoyment and drinks superbly as a young aromatic wine; yet is versatile enough to match with a wide array of foods: Asian and Mediterranean dishes where there is a slight sweetness in the meat or sauce, eg. duck with plum sauce, rack of lamb, spatchcock barbecued quail, pan fried turkey breast, grilled salmon, barbecued Asian spiced octopus, game pie, rabbit dishes or pigeon casserole. A versatile wine where the food matching is endless.
