Pipers Brook Ninth Island Chardonnay a Selection of Wines Or Other Items Australia Tasmania Chardonnay 2008
One of Australia’s groundbreaking cool climate pioneers, the first Pipers Brook vineyards were planted in 1974 on carefully selected sites along the north coast of Tasmania. Situated on the banks of the Tamar and Pipers Brook rivers, the winery’s stellar reputation is justified by uniformly high quality across the range. The wines continue to improve with each vintage in the very capable hands of long-term winemaker René Bezemer and viticulturalist Bruce McCormack. Pipers Brook remains at the forefront of innovation as home to one Australia’s most ambitious research projects, studying existing and new clones of Pinot and gauging the suitability of each to Tasmania's unique conditions. The aim of the winemaking in this style is to maximise the natural, cool climate chardonnay flavours and aromas without the use of oak. The grapes are carefully processed, using protective handling techniques, to avoid any juice oxidation or browning. The juice is then fermented slowly at low temperatures in stainless steel vats and the resultant wine is bottled early to capture fruitiness and freshness. This 'Chardonnay' has very delicate pale straw colour, with fragrant aromas of fresh peach, melon and tropical fruits. A delicate palate with tropical fruit flavours and cool climate acidity dominating the finish. A crisp mineral edge gives a fresh, dry aftertaste. This Chardonnay, with its refreshing finish, is a perfect accompaniment to seafood, Caesar salad; mussels with tomato and saffron sauce; grilled white-fleshed fish .
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
