Meadowbank Pinot Noir 2017

From 30 year old vines in the upper Derwent Valley….almost central Tasmania. The wine making from the sure, cool hand of Peter Dredge.

Meadowbank, Pinot Noir, Derwent Valley, 2017

 

Spice driven tension apparent even from the first waft. Pure red cherry fruit under stalky thyme. A sweeter dark sugar crystal nuance. Streamlined power with intention. The whole bunch spice and texture underlines pure fruit with purpose. Peter Dredge’s wine making signature like sought after celebrity autograph. Exquisite.

Alc: 13.5%
