Rich style, cherry and strawberry, pinot noir riding high! Also a little autumnal and earthy, some sherry-like lift here too. It’s a little wild and flavoursome, no shortage of character, very subtle bubbles, a most gentle prickle here, saline and savoury, with a woodsy finish of good length, and a brick dust texture to close. In a way, I like it more than the 16 BdB for its charisma and point of difference. I really like this! - Gary Walsh The Wine Front
Our 2018 Blanc de Noirs was made exclusively with Meadowbank pinot noir and left on tirage for three years. It was disgorged in September 2021 with a minimal intervention dosage liqueur (we're talking next to no sugar added here, think Extra Brut!). This allows the wine to really showcase an authentic 'sense of place' experience, with trademark Meadowbank flavours and seasonal characteristics detectable between vintage releases.
After spending the last six months resting on cork, this wine is now in its prime for release and your drinking pleasure. Our Blanc de Noirs is decadence in a glass. Rich and unctuous in style, with a generous mouthfeel and classic Meadowbank pinot noir characteristics of strawberries and forest fruits. - Meadowbank Wines
