Ninth Island Sparkling
A feisty apéritif, clean, crisp and impressively balanced, with lemon and granny smith apple freshness, celebrating its chardonnay lead (almost two-thirds). The bead is fine and the dosage well integrated, with impressive acid line that draws the finish out long and honed. 2010 base with 24 months on lees in bottle, a blend of 60% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 10% pinot meunier, disgorged May 2014. $20 at WineStar, Wine Cow and Aussie Wines.
