97++ - 98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “Like the ‘South’ the bouquet speaks of its birthplace but with a little more concentration. Lemon oil, lemon thyme, licks of wet stone, sea salt and take a walk past Jasmine to really appreciate the floral aromatics. The palate is a touch waxier in style / weightier and offers more immediate enjoyment. That tell-tale salinity is such an attractive quality and works a treat with the fresh zip of citrus, flint and razor-sharp acidity. Extremely elegant and judged perfectly. This is just a beautiful, crystalline Tassie Chardonnay which will be amazing in five or so years. Served with Zalto Bordeaux glassware. Do not serve from the fridge. Decant for a wee while as this wine needs a little aeration.”
Dr Edge Chardonnay East 2019
Three of his wines are individual single vineyard wines that are designed to show the unique expressions of each vineyard and highlight the regional diversity across Tasmania. The three wines are simply named North, made from grapes from the Stoney Rise Vineyard in the Tamar Valley, East, produced from Hazards Vineyards in the East Coast region and South which is made from Meadowbank Vineyard in the Derwent Valley. Dr Edge also produces a fourth of each varietal that is a blend of all three sites, simply named Tasmania.
Peter has had an incredible career starting out at Petaluma in Adelaide Hills which is where he gained the nickname Dr Edge and where he was encouraged to travel to gain experience working a harvest at Dr Loosen in Germany. With a developing interest in Pinot Noir and cool climate winemaking, Peter took a temporary job at Bay of Fires winery in Northern Tasmania which turned into a permanent position as the senior winemaker and site manager. It was here that he was introduced to such names as Paul Lapsley, the chief winemaker at Hardys and sparkling wine legend, Ed Carr of House of Arras.
The Dr Edge wines have become a cult icon of Tasmanian wine and his releases are eagerly anticipated. The single vineyard wines are only made in small quantities each year with tiny allocations being offered, most of which are snapped up by the Australian market.
