Ninth Island Tasmania Sparkling NV

This Tasmanian sparkling wine is made from the classic Champagne varieties of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier.  It's a good wine, with aromatics of lemon and some toast.  The palate is dry, with very racy acidity, lean lemon pith characters and a fine mousse.  Another good Tasmanian sparkling wine.
