Welcome to Red EdgeSince the mid 1970's, the original vineyard now called Red Edge has been producing Shiraz and Cabernet wines which helped to forge the pedigree of Heathcote as an area of exceptional quality for full bodied yet elegant red wines. Peter Dredge took over the stewardship of those lovely old vines in 1994, and has built upon that reputation making his own mark with winemaking style, new varieties and unique blending.
Upcoming Events and News
The wet winter and spring has been a welcome change up at Heathcote replenishing the dry subsoil after many below average rainfall years. Great potential for a bumper season and now that the temperature is (finally) warming the vines are bursting out of their dormant stupor with triffid like growth. The risk of frost has passed so all is looking good for good yields and with a hopefully moderate summer grapes with great flavour and balance.
We have begun tasting and selling the 2014 vintage, and specifically the three levels of Shiraz, the Degree, the Red Edge Shiraz, and the 71 Block. To mark this we are hosting a lunch at our favorite city restaurant, Scopri, 191 Nicholson Street, Carlton on November 20. Still some places left, contact us if you would like to see the invitation.
The week after on Sunday November 27, we are showing these wines at the inaugural East Malvern Wine and Food Festival, Central Park, Burke Road, East Malvern. Love to see you there. Details www.eastmalvernfoodandwine.melbourne
