About The Pack
Peter Dredge is one of the great winemaking talents of his generation.
This rare six pack showcases his excellent red releases from both Tasmania and Oregon.

2018 Dr. Edge Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir
"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
"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
"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."

2019 Dr. Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir
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 across the Apple Isle. Peter has captured the lightness and purity of Tasmanian Pinot Noir beautifully here in the 2019 release.
This is a rockstar wine from one of Australia's most exciting young producers. Don't hesitate, allocations are limited.Read more about 2019 Dr. Edge Tasmania Pinot Noir
2018 Dr. Edge Gamay
"Dr Edge Gamay is from the Willamette Valley (Oregon - USA) and comes from the Croft Vineyard which is certified organic (OTCO). It's an earthy, structured Gamay fermented naturally as 100% whole clusters which undergo carbonic maceration for 10 days. The fruit is then foot stomped a few times a day either nude or in trunks (that's undies in Australia) for two days before being pressed to oak casks. Its matured in cask for 9 months and bottled without fining."

2020 Dr. Ongo Red-Ish Blend
A word of warning on this, the Dr. Edge Red-Ish is about as flat-out delicious as red-ish wine gets.
This is a blend of ALL the Pinots: Meunier, Noir, Gris, & Blanc, freshened up with a splash of Riesling.
The aromatics here will make your head spin. It's dizzyingly floral, all fresh spring flowers, sweet cherries, raspberries and watermelon with a sprig or two of fresh herbs thrown in the mix. The palate is uber-refreshing, the acidity is bright, the tannin fine and tightly dialled in.
Pete suggests drinking it with slight chill, no arguments from us. Be aware, this bottle will disappear in no time.Read more about 2020 Dr. Ongo Red-Ish Blend
