Meadowbank Harvest Sparkling
Current Vintage: 2019
This is a deliciously, frothy, pale pink, pick-me-up that sees Dr Edge blur the line between Pt-Nat and traditional sparkling wine. This year's release is 90% saigne Pinot Noir blended with unfermented Meadowbank Chardonnay juice, then fermented in the bottle to pretty-much-dryness under a crown seal. There's no disgorgement and no dosage. It's a joyous wine, offering moreish fresh strawberry, white peach and poppy seed notes and a gently structured, vinous finish. A 'saison' style for wine lovers.
Just two hours North West of Hobart, you’ll be met with pristine rolling hills, glorious countryside and numerous photo opportunities in Derwent Valley. The cool climate brought on by the icy antarctic winds coming off the Tasman Sea and North East facing hillsides make the valley a prime wine growing region.
Much like broader Tasmania, you can expect to find fantastic Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rieslings and maybe even some Gris! The valley is growing in esteem as the produce in this region is beginning to rival world renowned Pinot Noir growing countries like Oregon and Otago. Fresh and fruity wines in abundance, we cannot speak more highly of the Derwent Valley.
