Background: Fragrant, fresh and full of vibrant fruit, the Ninth Island label perfectly captures the distinctive charm of the Tamar Valley wine region. Ninth Island is named after a tiny island that sits alone in the Bass Strait, just offshore from the Pipers Brook Estate where these wines are made. The island's windswept, pristine environment is the inspiration behind this modern range of wines that capture the wild flavours of Tasmania.
