Pristine aromatic Tasmanian Chardonnay, The Ninth Island exhibits tropical and melon characters. Fresh, light and fruit driven this is a wine of quality and style. Perfect with seafood! The bouquet is fragrant with lifted aromas of freshly cut white peach, floral apple blossom, lemon and lime peel fruits.
The palate is clean fresh and vibrant with longer more stream-lined acid balance. Fruit is concentrated, complex and refreshing, offering a profile of minerals, apples and citrus tightly gathered. Food suggestions are a Ceasar Salad, mussels with tomatoe and saffron sauce, grilled white fleshed fish and other seafood dishes.
From the Winery
Our aim in the making of this style is to maximize the natural, cool climate flavours and aromas of chardonnay without the use of oak. The grapes are carefully crushed and de-stemmed using full protective handling techniques that avoid any juice oxidation or browning. The juice is then fermented slowly at cool temperatures in stainless steel vessels and the resultant wine is bottled early under screw cap to capture the fruitiness and freshness, producing a style that is intensely aromatic with a well-integrated crisp acid finish.
