About The Wine
The Meadowbank Gamay comes off a small planting of 20+-year-old vines in the Derwent Valley. It was crafted by the talented hands of Peter Dredge.
The 2018 vintage looks in fine form. A deeper, darker version of Gamay than many from the mainland.
In a last-minute decision by the winemaker, there were no preservatives added to this wine, making it more open and enticing this close to bottling.
This was only made in painfully small amounts this vintage. It will only be available for a limited time. If you love Gamay, this is a must try.
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.
