About The Wine

This is the inaugural release of Peter Dredge's mad Dr. Edge Riesling.

The formidable powers of Riesling from both the Derwent and Tamar Valleys are put to good use here. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a Dr. Edge wine without a little funk... And funk, it has...

A whopping nine months on lees and a little lazy time in some old barrels has put some weight on the skeletal Tassie Riesling frame. Yes, there are all the classic steel and citrus notes, but there's an extra layer of savouriness in this wine takes it to a transcendent level.

As always with the wines of the good Doctor, there aren't many bottles around. Grab one while you can.

The Wine Front

"Green apple, lime, barley sugar and white flowers, a thick and rich texture, cheese rind and lemon rind, but intense lime acidity pulses through it, and there’s grip and energy to go. Finish is full-flavoured, lime cordial, zest and spice, and very long and sure. Almost blows your hair back, which perhaps won’t be experienced by some, but I’m feeling very Barry Gibb in a wind tunnel at present. You can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a Dr. Edge man, no time to talk." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

I wanted more !

I’ve not had many Rieslings. I’d read the hype about Dr edge so decided to give it a shot. All in all, I’d buy it again. From memory, Honeysuckle came to mind. It was definitely NOT one dimensional. The tastes varied...exactly what I want in a wine. Very nice

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).
