About The Wine
The Meadowbank vineyard is largely responsible for putting Tasmanian Syrah on the map.
The 2011 Glaetzer-Dixon Syrah that shocked the country by taking home the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show, was sourced from the oldest plantings of Syrah on Meadowbank planted in 1974.
This site produces Syrah with elegance and spice in more of a European style than the big, bold Shiraz that we typically produce on the mainland.
Peter Dredge has once again put his large but gentle hands to good use with another classy Syrah release.
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.
