The Meadowbank Pinot is drawn from a specific parcel of vines planted by Gerald Ellis in 1987 (which Pete thinks is probably a combination of MV6 and D5V12). The 2022 was hand-picked in two even lots over the course of two weeks. The earlier pick was completely destemmed while the later had riper stems, so was fermented with 50% whole bunches. After ferment, the wine was pressed to a mix of old and new (15%) French barriques where it rested for nine months before it was bottled without filtration.The 2022 is a charming and immediately seductive release. Pretty Pinot fruits, perfumed florals and a pinch of spice align to a supple and silky texture, refreshing acidity and beautifully integrated, fine-grained tannins. It’s packed with juicy flavours and has drive and length for days. A moreish, pepper-flecked finish encourages a further pour. So much enjoyment here, through and through. Sadly, we don’t not have enough!
