Dr Edge 'Tyrannosaurus dREDge' is a blend of two pinot meunier Vineyards from Pipers Brook and Derwent Valley regions in Tasmania. Fermented on skins for one week, they were pressed to old oak casks to dry out and relax for two months, then blended and bottled without filtration. A dash (like 2%) of pinot noir is in there for extra roar.
Tyrannosaurus dREDge is the old dinosaur of the wine industry that a younger co-worker accused me of being last year. I took it personally and here we are. - Peter Dredge (Winemaker)
A fresh and vibrant expression of meunier but also manages to pack in some nice, dark cherry fruitiness, a little supple tannin and a good splash of blood orange-amaro-like tang. While soft and flowing, there's a quiet wild streak to the wine, albeit you feel like you're drinking something fancy. Fun stuff.
