Great array of flavours, excellent length, faint nutty-yeasty notes too. Lots going on here. A lip-smacking, satisfying white.
About The Wine
This is an excellent example of cool-climate Grüner Veltliner.
Grown organically on the Morrison vineyard planted by Duncan Forsyth in the late 1990s, this has great purity of fruit and shows the lovely texture and spice that this Austrian variety is known for.
Crunchy, apple-y, littered with white pepper and all the things you want in a Grüner.
It's just a great thing to drink.
About Mount Edward
Mount Edward is a team of passionate winemakers/rabble-rousers who have banded together to form a collective that is considered at the forefront of the Central Otago avant-garde.
Duncan Forsyth is one of the founders and spearheads this revolutionary project, with Swiss winemaker Anna Riederer heading up the day-to-day duties and crafting the wines.
They've made plenty of noise since the project's inception in 2003 when Duncan met co-founder John Buchanan.
Though they don't take themselves too seriously, the wine themselves are very serious indeed and a receiving plenty of attention.
