2018 Red Edge ‘Degree’ Heathcote Shiraz
Red Edge is the second oldest vineyard in Heathcote, having been planted in 1971. Peter Dredge and his family do everything themselves. The fruit is all dry grown, hand-picked, and Peter makes the wine on the property. His reds can be big and tannic, but the ‘Degree’ is for early drinking and is easy to approach in its youth. There’s 6% Mourvèdre and 4% of Riesling, co-fermented with the Shiraz, for aromatics.
