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. The sparkling wines are made in the Methode Champenoise style. Fruit is hand harvested between late March and early April, then carefully transported to the winery and pressed within 2 hours. Juice is batch fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in tank on primary yeast lees for 6 to 8 months before assemblage. The wine is then tiraged and spends 24 months on lees in bottle before disgorgement, at which time the wine spends a further four months on cork before release.
