About
This is a totally, utterly delicious riesling...

James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

About The Wine

Riesling from Tasmania is simply delightful when handled well. Winemaker Peter Dredge doesn't put a foot wrong when he's got fruit this good to play with.

This is a top-flight Tassie Riesling.

As is often the case with Riesling from this part of the country, retaining a little residual sweetness here was the key to balance. A wine of impeccable line and length, this is ripe for drinking immediately or tucking away for up to a decade in the cellar.

The 2018 is balanced to perfection. Long and precise and ready to drink now or in a decade.

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

Scintilating Riesling from the Meadowbank team. Green apple, blossoms, a touch of honey and jellied lime. It's long and piercing through the mouth, a citrussy river of sweet and sour lime juice with crunchy, crystal clear acidity. It's a delicious mouthful of wine. Lengthy and focused. Belting Riesling. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Green apple, talc, slight flinty smoky thing, lime pie. It’s intense, but doesn’t result in the ‘face like a half-chewed wine gum’ thing. Powdery, perfumed, all the green apple, clean and fresh, but most importantly, superb length and definition on the finish. It’s a bloody beauty." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

98Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented, 60% controlled temperature in stainless steel with some residual sugar remaining, 40% wild-fermented dry with mlf and alcoholic fermentation. This is a totally, utterly delicious riesling, the yin and yang forever bound to each other." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Good enough to want heaps more

2018 Meadowbank Riesling is a lovely fresh wine with delicate green apple and citrus nicely balanced. James Halliday’s 98 point rating may be a tad excessive, but I’d buy mote if it was available. Definitely on the watch list.

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?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
