It’s one of the best Rieslings I’ve tasted in quite some time.
About The Wine
Winemaker Peter Dredge doesn't put a foot wrong when he's got fruit this good to play with, and this is simply 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 2020 is balanced to perfection. Long and precise and ready to drink now or in a decade.
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.
