Dr. Edge is made by Peter Dredge. Cutting his teeth at Petaluma under the watchful gaze of Brian Croser, he was lured to Tasmania and now resides in Hobart, working with his own label (Dr. Edge) as well as stepping into winemaking duties at Meadowbank.
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.
