About The Wine

Peter Dredge is breathing new life into the Meadowbank brand.

After several years hiatus, Dredge has partnered up with the Ellis family to re-launch the brand. His suite of 2017 releases are dynamic modern Tasmanian wines, putting this all-important vineyard front and centre once more.

The Chardonnay is fermented wild, allowed to go through malo at its own pace. Only a small portion of new oak, allowing the fruit quality from 2017 take centre stage.

It's sleek, more-ish and beautifully balanced. Top notch Tasmanian Chardonnay here.

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

Halliday Wine Companion

"While Tasmania has at times faltered with chardonnay, both small and large producers are coming to understand it better, this a good example. It is intense and precise, acidity simply part of a much larger whole, the fruit spectrum balanced to also include apple and pear." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
