Winery: Dr Edge
Region: Tamar Valley & Derwent Valley - Tasmania
Winemaker: Peter Dredge
Varietal(s): 100% Riesling
This is the inaugural release of Peter Dredge's mad Dr. Edge Riesling.
The formidable powers of Riesling from both the Derwent and Tamar Valleys are put to good use here. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a Dr. Edge wine without a little funk... And funk, it has...
A whopping nine months on lees and a little lazy time in some old barrels has put some weight on the skeletal Tassie Riesling frame. Yes, there are all the classic steel and citrus notes, but there's an extra layer of savouriness in this wine takes it to a transcendent level.
