Dr Edge - 2021 Gold

2021 Gold

Chardonnay Musque
Northern Tasmania, Tasmania
Chardonnay musque and Chardonnay blend. What? Okay. Something worked. So much ginger, salt and golden apple. An almost cider-y vibe, that rich orchard apple and feral, fermented undertone. Galangal, lemongrass, saffron. Just, special. How we love Pete Dredge from Tasmania. He is one third of the Brian wines, makes wine for Meadowbank and also somehow finds time to do his own release under the label, Dr. Edge. The wines always retain an electric acidity yet concentrated fruit purity, Pete knows when to pick and he knows when to let the fruit do the talking in the cellar. Nice to see these more modern styles of wine be truly age worthy too.
