The Ninth Island Chardonnay showcases cool-climate vineyard sites of Pipers Brook and Strathlyn in the North of Tasmania. Aromas are of white blossom, light peach, subtle honeysuckle and green tea, while flavours are of white stone fruit and citrus with hints of lychee. There is enticing acidity and a white quartz-like minerality.

Bright and refreshing, this wine is full of citrus zest, vanilla and white flowers. The palate is layered with lemon curd from the Chardonnay fruit and delicate strawberries from the Pinot Noir, balanced by creamy notes from aging in bottle and the refreshing natural acidity for which the Pipers River region is renowned. Aperitif in style, classic in execution.
