When wine author Tyson Stelzer says your sparkling rose is “the best sparkling wine under $20 that I have tasted. Ever,” you know it is a winner.

Ninth Island Non-Vintage Sparkling Rose was acclaimed by Mr Stelzer as the Sparkling Wine of the Year Under $25 in his Australian Sparkling Report 2018.

“Ninth Island has landed in pink guise, and no surprise, with rosé queen Nat Fryar entering the building to join the team of wizards at Piper’s Brook.”

Mr Stelzer admired “its gracefully pale salmon hue through its elegant restraint”.

Ninth Island’s Non-Vintage Cuvee was a also runner up for the title.
