2018 Mount Edward Central Otago Pinot Blanc

93 Points The Wine Front
In stock
A beautifully subtle and mineral Pinot Blanc, New Zealand is lucky that among its few examples of this rare variety there is such a good one as this. From an organic artisan producer, the nose and palate is all about delicate tree fruits, citrus and florals with a subtle fleshy texture and stony-mineral background. Delicious as an aperitif or with fish and lighter white meat, this tiny-volume European-styled wine always sells out. Get in while it's here!

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.

What The Critics Say

93/100 The Wine Front, Mike Bennie

"Juicy, slippery, bright. Stone fruit, just ripe, some creamy-vanilla-nutty stuff happening, good intensity, good concentration, more than you expect. A lovely, flavoursome mouthful of white wine with refreshment factor up but so too fruit and general everything. You’d call it a medium bodied white. And done well." Drink 2020 - 2025

90/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Creamy pinot blanc with lanolin, nectarine, peach and a hint of vanilla carried by subtle sweetness that's nicely balanced by fruity acidity. Delicious now but no rush 30 AUG 2019." Drink 2019 - 2022
