One of New Zealand's best dry Rieslings. Mount Edward are described in Parker's Wine Advocate as Riesling "fanatics" (that's a good thing) for using organic and other strict practices -- though it is mainly sheer brilliance at work. Their superb Pinot Noir is having to cede some limelight to this beautiful white, which is almost dry with nice depth and harmony of citrus, minerals and florals. A world class Riesling that's also quintessentially Central Otago -- drink or age it.

Its Origins

Mount Edward is a small winery located in the heart of the Gibbston grape growing district, 25 km from Queenstown, in Central Otago, New Zealand. Founded in 1997, the winery was started by one of the pioneers of Central Otago wine, Alan Brady. Originally started as a small personal project Mount Edward has evolved from its humble beginnings as a stand alone Pinot Noir and Riesling producer. Today the winery has vineyards in the best sub regions of Central Otago, producing wines across a number of varieties and styles. Since 2004, winemaker Duncan Forsyth and proprietor John Buchanan, have focused Mount Edward on growing small batch premium single vineyard wines that reflect site and season. As part of this, all estate vineyards, and the winery itself, are certified organically.
