Dr Edge - 2021 Amber

2021 Amber

Pinot Gris, Schonburger
Northern Tasmania
This release is flooring. Staggering. Just, YUM! Buy them all, do it. The Amber is a blend of Pinot Gris and Schonburger (a pretty random German variety that LOVES Tasmania). It tastes precisely like a grown up version of peach iced tea. Black tea tannin and fleshy stone fruit. It’s perfect. 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.
