Ninth Island is the budget label of Pipers Brook Vineyard. This is a bright, tight, nervy Chablis-style with little or no oak. Fresh citrusy aromas of lemon and grapefruit. Fine and delicate in the mouth; intense, crisp, with focus and balance. An exemplary fruit-style chardonnay. Now to three years. 12 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
