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.
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.
