About The Pack

The Dr. Edge Oregon Pinot Noir project has been a long time in the making for Peter Dredge.

The idea was a simple one: 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 here. Two are from individual vineyards (either certified organic or sustainable) and a third wine which is a blend of the two sites, similar to his Tasmania Pinot Noir in concept.

These are absolutely breathtaking wines, each a study in detail and finesse from one of the most talented Australian winemakers of his generation. Dredge only made minuscule amounts of these Pinot Noirs. Each wine there was less than 70 dozen made. This three pack is extremely limited and will sell out.

2018 Dr. Edge Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

96 points

"Chehalem Mountains. Such a good sounding place name. It’s in the northern tip of the Willamette Valley.

Charismatic, and immediately appealing for its distinct personality. It’s ultra-mineral, a smoky pumice stone character, which, in a way, puts me in mind of Etna, though it’s not that, but has a kinship. Texture is a highlight, gentle drag of dusty tannin, set in glistening strawberry juiciness, fruity, yet bony, with cool acidity and heaps good smoky length. It’s a wine of verity, dry wit, and uncompromising volcanic personality. Or something like that."

2018 Dr. Edge Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

95 points

"I’ve been to Portland a few times. Nice town. Never ventured up county though. Eola-Amity is one of the cooler spots for growing Pinot Noir, apparently. In the southern bits of the Willamette Valley.

It’s rosy and spicy, with a crushed rock feel, red cherry and strawberry, and a slight smokiness. Medium-bodied, sappy and full of fresh cherry and red fruit, a smattering of aromatic herbs, tannin has a fine chalky feel offering sure grip, and then a spicy and floral vanilla-tinged finish of excellent length. So vibrant and engaging. Beautiful wine. Distinct sense of place, too."

2018 Dr. Edge Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

95 points

"I’m guessing this is a blend of the Chehalem and Eola-Amity vineyards, a la Dr Edge Tasmania. Well, like many a Barolo, the blend of vineyards works splendidly.

Red fruit, pepper, ash, fennel and roses. Light to medium-bodied, crisp and frisky, lick of pumice stone tannin, strawberry and raspberry flavour, juicy, mineral, dusty feel with succulence of fruit, and a long dried herb tinged finish. Such energy and verve. Outstanding. Something extra in the glass here, and a delight for lovers of fine Pinot Noir, no doubt."

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
