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!
