    Winemaker Notes

    The bouquet shows an array of fresh red berries: raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants and cherries with an overlay of mild white pepper spice. The palate is surprisingly rich, soft and smooth for such a young, light bodied red. It finishes long with good acid and soft tannins.

    Ninth Island  Winery Image
    Pipers Brook was established in 1974 by Dr Andrew Pirie, who is credited with placing Tasmanian wine on the world stage when his Ninth Island Chardonnay won the Best White Wine at the International Wine Challenge in London in 1994. It’s a large vineyard on the north-east side of the Tamar River, planted on vertosol (black-cracking clay) and ferrosol (volcanic) soils, both having excellent water holding capacity and offering a steady supply of vine moisture and nourishment. Given the isolated, cool climate, core varieties are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The winery’s second range, Ninth Island, is named after a small, windswept island sitting alone in the Bass Strait that on a clear day can be seen from the winery. This range of wines is inspired by the wild flavors of Tasmania and the distinctive charm of the Tamar Valley wine region. Chief winemaker, Jim Chatto, is a Len Evans Tutorial Scholar and senior wine show judge with over 20 years of experience across both regional and capital city shows. Behind the sparkling wines is Natalie Fryar, famous for creating the Jansz style of “Methode Tasmanoise”. All wines are made from estate-grown fruit, hand-picked and gently treated at the winery.

    A large, climatically diverse country with incredibly diverse terrain, producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet. Most regions are concentrated in the south of the country with those inland experiencing warm, dry conditions and those in coastal areas receiving tropical, maritime or Mediterranean weather patterns. Australia has for several decades been at the forefront of winemaking technology and has widely adopted the use of screwcaps, even for some premium and ultra-premium bottles. Thanks to the country’s relatively agreeable climate throughout and the openness of its people, experimentation is common and ongoing.

    Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety; Barossa Valley leads the way, producing exceptionally bold and supple versions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia's second most planted variety, can be blended with Shiraz but also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône Blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version and Semillon is often blended in Margaret River or shines on its own in the Hunter Valley. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria.
