2023 Chardonnay

2023 Chardonnay

Say hello to the newest vintage of our pinnacle white wine, the one and only Meadowbank Chardonnay.

So, what's all the hype about? This classic, cool-climate Tasmanian Chardonnay is one of the purest expressions of our hidden vineyard. It consistently receives very high praise from wine reviewers and journalists year after year (it has never received less than 95 points from the Halliday Wine Companion alone!). With such a great track record, we're confident in assuring both chardonnay lovers and haters alike that this wine will surely impress and delight.

Our 2023 Meadowbank Chardonnay is nothing short of outrageously delicious. Low grape yields in the vineyard (kind of bad from a business perspective) have produced an extremely high quality and flavourful wine (kind of great from a drinking perspective).

This wine is a vibrant, golden-hued beauty that gives you instant appeal, as aromas of white peach and citrus zest dance earnestly from the glass. Rich and utterly tantalising on the palate, it delivers all the complex flint and lemon curd flavours you can dream of. It is bright, fresh and absolutely jam packed with flavour.

These grapes are taken from our 1987-planted Chardonnay vines. We lovingly nurture and harvest all the grapes by hand, before passing them on to our winemaker, Peter Dredge. Pete is all about minimal intervention in the winery and simply allows the vineyard to speak for itself. He takes whole bunches of grapes and presses them straight into hand-selected and pre-seasoned French oak barrels (about 10% new oak). The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for 9 months, before being bottled without fining agents.

What we love most about this wine, besides its absolute drinkability, is how wonderfully versatile it is. Enjoy it on its own, or pair it with cheese, chicken, seafood, pasta, roast vegetables, soup, even fried food... the options are almost endless.

2023 is a vintage to celebrate - this wine will happily sleep and continue to evolve beautifully in your cellar for 3-5 years. The only downside... this is a very small batch, single vineyard wine, so stock is highly limited. Seriously, grab some while you can!


95 POINTS - "Chardonnay from the Derwent River Valley showing great length of flavour and drive. White peach, nectarine, green apple and grapefruit tones with underlying hits of nougat, crushed river stone, wildflowers, flint, dried herbs and softly spoken cashew oak. Dots of oatmeal and soft spice throughout with an enticing mineral line, excellent tension and detail finishing long and pure." - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

95 POINTS - "Quite bony, but lots of energy here. Ripe lemon, grapefruit, some fennel and herb, a cold metal sort of thing (don’t mind me), subtle smokiness. Intense, some chicken stock and spiced oatmeal in with the chalky texture and bright acidity, sporting a finish of excellent length. Goes a little stonefruity and richer in the aftertaste. Really like this." - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
