Meadowbank Syrah, named so due to the fruit and style being more akin to the Syrah of France's Northern Rhone region, is an elegant and purposeful step away from big, bold and boisterous Shiraz. It is wholeheartedly light and ethereal, in all its unashamed glory. This single vineyard wine is smooth and sultry with just the right amount of sass. A light and savoury red wine with a satin-like texture that makes this very, very drinkable. A punch of acidity balanced with highly refined tannins that speak of the cool climate in which these grapes were grown are interwoven with beautiful dark fruits like blackberries, plums and cool climate white pepper spice. Can drink now but will be great in 10 years.
Meadowbank is a farm and vineyard in the Derwent Valley of Tasmania. Run by the Ellis family since 1976, Meadowbank has many layers yet is singular in its pursuit of quality. Located approximately 65km north west of Hobart's bustling CBD, historically Meadowbank Vineyard has supplied Tasmania with some of it's best fruit. Partnering with friend and winemaker Peter Dredge, the next chapter is now being written. ‘Meadowbank’ is the purest realisation of what our vineyard and Tasmania can offer. We look forward with great enthusiasm to the future with our amazing fruit and the natural skills of Peter's wisdom to produce our next award winning wines.
