The Dr Edge Tasmanian Pinot Noir is made by Peter Dredge, the winemaker at Meadowbank in the Derwent Valley.
Red cherry, spice, honey, a little smoke and cap gun. Light, but juicy and almost sweet, fine tannin, fresh and bright, tacky wet paint kind of feel, stalks and meat, and a plump finish. It feels unresolved as a young wine, so I came back to it a day or so later, and it’s all spice, dark cherry juice, but with a fine-boned and mineral thing going on, the tannin gentle strokes of emery board, finish bright and water-coloured. It’s light but certainly has the stuffing to age beautifully. Tasted: Apr 19; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $50; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2032+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
This wine comes from vineyards with MV6 and/or 115 clones, and was whole berry open-fermented with the exception of some whole bunch and/or carbonic. Ethereal spice, flower and berry aromas lead into a relatively light-bodied palate, with flawless line, length and balance; a juicy red fruits finish.
