With a resume that includes such legendary names as Brian Croser, Sue Bell, Ed Carr and a stint at Dr Loosen Peter Dredge is no stranger to groundbreaking vinous exploits. Whilst heading up the winemaking team at Meadowbank by day he is quickly becoming known for the invigorating wines produced under his passion project Dr Edge. The fruit is sourced from long standing network of various high-quality vineyards.
With ‘Dredgy’ crafting everything by hand from only the most precise parcels, volumes are tiny and fleeting from this cult producer.
The ethos of Dr Edge revolves heavily around reflecting the purity of each site. This is achieved through working with growers that respect the land and understand that ethical agricultural practices are pivotal in this process. All inputs in the vineyards are kept to a minimum with disease pressure quite low in such a cool climate. The wines are made with minimal intervention, minimal sulphur and no fining or filtration.
