Description

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

Dredge has a wealth of experience garnered at high-profile wineries across the country, including his current 'day job' at Meadowbank where he steers the ship. Dr. Edge is his personal passion project, with the enigmatic range including premium single vineyard explorations of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, as well as a plethora of fun, smashable experimental creations.

Here is a tasting pack of five current release wines from Dr. Edge, including his highly rated single vineyard Pinot Noir and Riesling, as well as the newly released 'Chardennui' Chardonnay, the 'Ambrosia' Schonburger Pinot Gris and the 'Tyrannosaurus' dREDge Pinot Meunier.

This pack is extremely limited, as always with Dredge's wines, so get in quick and experience the delicious creations of one of the country's finest producers.

The Pack Features:

2021 Dr Edge Tasmania Riesling

The formidable powers of Riesling from all corners of Tasmania are put to good and fascinating use here. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a Dr. Edge wine without a little funk... And funk, it has...

It's an equal blend of Pete Dredge's North, South and East Rieslings, bottled unfiltered with some residual sugar.

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 transcendently weird level.

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

2023 Dr. Edge Chardennui Chardonnay

According to winemaker Peter Dredge, 'Chardennui' is the "not so normal" Chardonnay in his wide range of Chardies. But, just like normal, it delivers up interest and deliciousness in spades.

It comes from a blend of fruit from three different vineyards across the Tamar Valley and East Cost regions of Tasmania, with the fruit all foot-stomped and partially fermented on skins. It even has a dash of Riesling thrown in!

All in all this is fresh, fun and flavour-packed Chardonnay, but get in quick as it won't be around for long.

2023 Dr. Edge Ambrosia Schonburger Pinot Gris

The Dr. Edge Ambrosia brings together the common and often wonderful Pinot Gris with the rare and virtually unknown Schonburger in an amber wine with lots of personality.

Coming from the cool-climate Tamar Valley in Tasmania's north, the whole berries were co-fermented with five days of skin contact before being pressed to old oak. The finished wine sees no fining or filtering and only a small amount of sulphur before bottling.

Lovers of skin-contact wine will swoon over this one. Fresh notes of honey, lychee, elderflower, peach and cantaloupe leap from the glass, while the palate is bright, chalky and alive, with a nice tangy finish.

2023 Dr. Edge Tyrannosaurus dREDge Pinot Meunier

The Dr. Edge Tyrannosaurus dREDge is a dinosaur in name but definitely not in nature.

Named in honour of being called a "dinosaur" by an employee (we assume a former employee now), winemaker Peter Dredge sourced the grapes from Pipers Brook in Tassie's north, and the Derwent Valley in the south, with an eye to making a wine which reflected the diverse terroir of its origins. A mix of 50% whole berry on skins and the rest under carbonic maceration, it then spent two months on lees in tank.

Tart cherries and fresh pomegranate mix with a herb-infused and forest floor savouriness to create an ultra-bright and cherry wine. A pure pleasure to drink.

2022 Dr. Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir

One of Tasmania's most dynamic winemakers in full flight with this release - an electric 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 - the Derwent & Tamar Valleys. Pete has captured the lightness and purity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir with this combo.

This is a rockstar wine from one of Australia's most exciting cool-climate producers. Don't hesitate on this one - it won't be around for long.

    The Perfect Pack

    What a great way to experience the Dr Edge Pinot Noirs. It is interesting to note the subtle differences between the three wines.

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.
