Mount Edward, Central Otago

"How good are these Pinot Noir's? Damned good!" Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator.

Maverick, revolutionary, genius, ingenious, insubordinate, dynamo, pioneer and avant-garde........ these are just a few words that have been used to describe Duncan Forsyth, winemaker at Mount Edward wines.

With two decades of experience in Central Otago, Duncan's aim is to make great wine that has personality, reflecting its origins with everything being 'hands-on'. Not content with just making fantastic Pinot, after advice from French soil and wine expert Dr Claude Bourguignon in the early 2000's, Duncan planted some Riesling in his top Morrison vineyard which now regularly delivers some of Mount Edward's most exciting and extreme wines. We feel very lucky to have been granted a small allocation of the Mount Edward and Morrison Vineyard Rieslings this year and are delighted to be adding them to our portfolio. Volumes are tiny and these are not wines to miss the boat on!
