About The Wine
The Dr. Edge Oregon Pinot Noir project has been a long time in the making for Peter Dredge.
The idea was to replicate the same exploration of Pinot Noir that he has undertaken in Tasmania, but through the lens of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, USA.
There are three distinct expressions of the Pinot Noir grape from the 2018 vintage. The Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir comes from the Azana vineyard owned by Healy's uncle.
This wine shows immense power and athleticism, with raw mineral drive and a riotous perfume of cherries, strawberries and volcanic earth. It's smoky, it's seductive, it's pleasure in Pinot form. This is a phenomenal depiction of Pinot Noir that will continue to reveal further layers of itself for many years to come.
