Dr Edge 2018 Willamette Valley Gamay
Notes from Pete Dredge:
These Oregon beauties are a different beast. Although produced identically to the Tasmanian Dr. Edge Pinot's the vineyard location and farming is wildly different over there. Organic and biodynamic with 100% leaf pluck in the fruiting zone and zero sulphur spray in the vineyard in most instances. Cinnamon oil works! Anyway, with all this, different soil, rough prevailing winds plus the fact that its a little warmer in Oregon than Tasmania, the result is big, tannic, rich and funky as f&*k Gamay. Certified Organic. 100% Whole Cluster - savoury, bunchy stuff. Elegant and rich and fruitful and complex - needs a lick of air but then she will be breathing deep and wonderfully.
