About The Wine

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 opposite ends of the Apple Isle (Derwent and Tamar Valleys) - and Pete has captured the lightness and purity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir

This is a rockstar wine from one of Australia's most exciting cool-climate producers.

Don't hesitate, allocations are super limited.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Dr Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir 2020 is a blend of Derwent Valley (90%) and Tamar Valley (10%) fruit.

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%)
Drink Until : 2026

The Wine Front

"90% Derwent Valley and 10% Tamar Valley. Take your time with this one: it’s pretty, and pretty shy. Fresh raspberry, thyme, lavender and honey, spice and ash, neoprene, blackcurrant and violet. Light in body, again fresh raspberry and cranberry crunch, sappy and perfumed, brick dust tannin, glassy acidity, with a fragrant and pretty red fruited finish of excellent length. So delicate and bony, but very lovely. The devil is in the detail, as it were. Well outside the mainstream, but so worthy. And different." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Delicious

Dredge said there was bugger all 2020 pinot noir fruit around. He's produced a delicious wine nonetheless.

The 2020 is translucent purple. A pretty, juicy wine with a full satisfying finish.

Believe the hype

Beautifully translucent bright smooth wine with abundant red fruits. To quote Rick Stein quoting the french on french wines "il danse dans le verre" - it dances in the glass. And I love glass dancers

Very nice Tas Pinot noir

It’s very good now! Strawberry notes, a touch of earthiness. I’m wondering how this will develop!

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
