Mount Edward

About The Wine

Pinot Noir is what the Mount Edward crew are obsessed with.

There's a lot of different pieces that come together in this wine.

Some portions are fermented as 100% whole bunches, some are fully destemmed, the different batches are hand plunged, everything is fermented using wild yeasts. The final wine is assembled by Duncan Forsyth & Anna Riederer.

The immaculate balance of the finished wine is quite astonishing when you look at it. It's an elegant and refined style of Pinot Noir with a bit of a wild streak.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of darker berryfruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs. The 2016 has a silky and lush texture fruit power yet finely balanced with fine tannins throughout and long in flavour. An elegant vintage for us and for people who prefer the classics over the blockbuster, that said we had enough warm days to give a definitely a more plush and softness than the preceding few years." - Mount Edward
