About The Wine

He's played around with the Pet-Nat style for a few years now, has Peter Dredge, but he thinks he's onto a winning formula here.

This is mostly saignee Pinot Noir from the Meadowbank vineyard. Not happy with the chunky, chewy bits so often found in the bottom of other Pet-Nats, Dredge has disgorged each of these bottles and topped them with still fermenting Riesling juice to give a fresh and fizzy drink which is ready for guzzling.

An extremely limited amount of this is available. He made only 50 dozen and it is completely sold out. If you want a crack at the hilariously named Dr. Ongo, you'll need to be quick.

About Dr. Edge

Peter Dredge is Dr. Edge. He is one of the most intuitive and talented winemakers on the Apple Isle.

With a wealth of experience garnered at wineries such as Petaluma, he has revitalised the Meadowbank label and returned it to its place as one of the must-watch vineyards in Tasmania.

A nominee for the Young Gun of Wine Awards in 2017 for his work at Meadowbank, Dr. Edge is his passion project, a place where he can feel free to take risks and make Pinot Noir that truly excites him.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Fairy-floss/pink highlighter colour. It's all crunchy pomegranate and grapefruit, clean as a whistle. Love the cleansing acidity, like biting into a fresh piece of fruit. Fizzy goodness. The ultimate breakfast wine. Mixed berry pancakes and a tumbler of this = win! - Different Drop Wine Team
