Meadowbank Derwent Valley Pinot Noir 2017


97 Halliday, 95+ Gary Walsh, 95 James Suckling, 95 Huon Hooke, Gold 2019 Royal Sydney Wine Show…well the ‘experts’ seem to like this wine, and so do I.

This is a great vineyard to visit if you’re in Tasmania. You’d need to pre-arrange and you’d need a car as it’s quite some way up the beautiful Derwent Valley but it’s worth it. The Meadowbank Pinot Noir comes off only a tiny bit of the large Meadowbank vineyard as most of the grapes are sold to other winemakers such as Peter Dredge of Dr Edge, Kate Hill, Dawson James to name a few (in fact Peter Edge makes this wine).

I ran out of space on the attachment to include the James Suckling review, so here it is:

“Great depth and detail here with toasted spices and meaty nuances, ahead of ripe red fruit and a very succulent, long and juicy palate that holds so much flavour. Impressive build and depth here. Drink or hold. Screwcap. – 95”

Plenty of bottles in Melbourne which can be here mid-January if ordered, or if you can’t wait, I have 3 bottles in Singapore which I could deliver by 18 December latest.

RRP downunder of A$55, price here in Singapore S$69 all up, no minimum purchase, free delivery.
