Hand picked Chardonnay, Pinot Meuniere and Pinot Noir grapes are grown to deep ferrosol volcanic soils at Pipers River. This particular soil type has an excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to the vines throughout the growing season. Bucher airbag presses are employed to yield 550 litres per tonne of free run juice from the whole bunch pressed grapes. The juices are batch fermented in tank and aged on primary yeast lees for six to eight months before assemblage. The wine is then tiraged and spends two years on lees in bottle before disgorgement, followed by several more months in bottle under cork before release.
Ninth Island embarked on an odyssey to create the nation's finest sparkling by choosing the perfect ground to plant vines. In the creation of a Pipers River Sparkling, Ninth Island have intentionally aimed for an easy drinking style. Pinot Meunier plays an important role in the approachability, acting as a flavour accelerator that gives bright fruit notes on the nose and also acts to flesh out the middle palate. All is beautifully balanced by engaging Chardonnay characters of citrus, mineral and honeycomb, finishing with crisp and lingering acidity.
Delicate pale gold hue, refined mousse. Subtle shortbread and nutty overtones from yeast influence combine with floral and raspberry highlights from the pinot noir/meunier grapes. Along with the delicate citrus and pear influence of the chardonnay grapes, the overall impression is of christmas cake and spice under creme brulee aromas. A generous and multilayered palate exhibiting expressive Pinot Noir spices and red berry fruits, complemented by Pinot Meunier fruit weight.
