AKA Mardi's Magical Rosé
For a few years now, Mardi has been making a sneaky batch of Meadowbank Rosé up at the farm. It would end up in kegs and was given exclusively* to our good friends at Frank Restaurant to serve at their bar. We began to receive countless enquiries from Frank patrons as to where this delicious wine could be purchased. Sadly, it couldn't, as we were yet to put any of it in to bottled format.
*ok, so we may have kept a keg or two for our own consumption and to share with close friends... it was just so good!
When the 2021 harvest rolled around, Mardi took her 2 month old son Lewis out in the vineyard and selected the Pinot Noir which would be used to make her 2021 Rosé. She helped to hand-pick the grapes from our 'Home Run' block and delivered them safely to the winery. The newborn juggle was real, so Meadowbank bestie, Laurel Benson, was enlisted to foot stomp the grapes. They were then left for 24 hours before being pressed to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Most of this wine still went to keg, however due to popular request, we decided to bottle some for a highly limited release. Unfined and unfiltered - our magical Rosé is raring to go.
On to the wine...
Luscious, fruity and so damn refreshing - this wine really hits the spot on a warm summer's day. It's vibrantly "pink" and can happily hold it's own with or without food. A definite crowd pleaser!
Only 20 dozen available - seriously, get it while you can.
*Note: for those wondering, all our wines are vegan friendly.
