Description

Coming to your wine rack soon - 'Chardonnay and the revenge of its Mutant Clone, Chardonnay Musque'.

Fresh Chardy is blended with the skins of the rare Musque grape, fermented for a short time in old oak. The result, is a buoyant, sweet/sour tightly-wound white with lots of funky aromatics.

Peachy, nervy and tangy, with a touch of texture. A wine to pash.

Gold is Chardonnay Musque ex Mona/Moorilla vineyard - a 4 barrel ferment as just juice, with the 5th being a skins ferment. blended together with some regulation Chardonnay to temper the muscat character - about 3 months on lees - rack, stuff all sulphur, bottle without filtering. ***Aside - Musque clone and skins in my mind makes up for the drab variety that is Chardonnnay so often bombarded with French oak which is real bloody Australian ya know?

91 Points - "A Chardonnay Musque and Chardonnay blend. Always believe in your soul.

Crystallized ginger, musk and spice, peach, salt and apple. It’s a strange one, but kind of good in that way, apple cider with a ginger infusion, fine powdery and milky feel to it, dry and slightly sour to close, though not without perfume and spice. Odd, but kind of compelling. Like it." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 Bay of Fires, he has revitalised the Meadowbank label and returned it to its place as one of the must-watch vineyards in Tasmania.

Dr. Edge is his passion project where he can take risks and make Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Riesling that truly excites him. His creativity can fly under the Dr. Edge banner and wines that walk a fine line of tension, funk and freshness invariably arise.

Only small batches of wine is produced, all made by hand, and typically they sell out in short order. Playful, pleasurable and remarkably thoughtful, the Dr. Edge creations are riveting things to drink and have rightfully earned cult status among collectors of Tasmania's finest.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
