One of Tasmania's most dynamic winemakers in full flight here. An electric release of Pinot Noir from our most Southern state.

The Dr. Edge Tasmanian Pinot Noir is made by Peter Dredge, the winemaker at Meadowbank in the Derwent Valley.

This wine is made from fruit from across the Apple Isle. Peter has captured the lightness and purity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir beautifully here in the 2019 release.

This is a rockstar wine from one of Australia's most exciting young producers.

Don't hesitate, allocations are limited.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Dr Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir is a blend of East Coast, Tamar Valley & Pipers Brook fruit. A slight shift from the house style with more Northern Tasmanian vineyard material. Some Southern areas were sadly affected by bushfire and didn't make the blend. It's an ethereal Pinot Noir fermented naturally with only two weeks on skins then pressed to oak casks, matured for 9 months and bottled without fining. Medium to long term cellaring will reward.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 12.50%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2028
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Such a complex Pinot Noir in such a delicate framework. Smoke and flint, black cherry aromas, some earth and a hint of mushroom. Long spindley fingers of pulverised rock tannin stretch out coating the mouth in a fine powdery texture. Acidity is bright and crisp. It's beautiful with some attitude. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"It’s light and lucid, a bright cherry sweetness layered with spice and a bit of wetsuit style reduction, and a little fresh mint and rosy perfume. Tannin is light and fine-grained, just tugging away gently through the palate, a coolness of acidity, almost an alpine freshness here, with some dried leaf and mulch layering in some complexity. Finish is more autumn leaf stuff, but pure of fruit underneath, ripe raspberries, and quite long. Oak is not a feature of the wine. It’s a very good thing to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
