About The Wine

This is a rare release of something from the experimental side of Meadowbank vineyards in Tasmania.

This little number came into being through a 'bleed-off' of fermenting juice from the Meadowbank Pinot Noir and the next vintage of Meadowbank Blanc de Blancs Sparkling. It's almost a Pet-Nat, but not quite.

What it is, is a spritzy, spritely pink coloured delight. Think fizz watermelon juice and you're heading in the right direction. Very little of this made it to the mainland.

If you want to give this a rip, you'll need to be quick.

About Meadowbank

Meadowbank is one of the oldest vineyards in Tasmania with the Ellis family having farmed this site since 1976.

This is one of the most important sites on the Apple Isle.

After taking a brief hiatus from producing their own wines, Meadowbank now has the formidable talents of winemaker Peter Dredge at their disposal.

With Dredge in the winemaking hot seat, Meadowbank is set to be one of the benchmark producers in Tasmania for many years to come.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is just a bucketload of fun to guzzle! Cloudy but electric pink in the glass. It smells of watermelon, cherry and flowers, some cidery notes, kombucha and a hint of sweetness. Fine foamy fizz through the mouth. Good clip of acidity. Makes you want to do cartwheels. Unpretentious and just great drinking. - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
