Mount Edward

TED Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Mount Edward is in the prestigious address of Felton Road Bannockburn although the grapes for this wine also come from other sub districts. This has a lovely Central Otago perfume showing dark cherry, raspberry, white pepper, thyme and red florals. A lovely nose. The palate doesn’t quite deliver following the nose. Very good for a 2nd wine just without the concentration on the palate. Given to me as a gift from a mate whose name is Ted. Wonderful graphics on the label I thought. — 19 days ago

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Ripe but sophisticated bouquet. Strawberry stew, sweet plum, clove, tomato, sagebrush and underbrush. Less fruity, more mineral palate with flavours of raw meat, iron, underbrush and sagebrush. Wonderful and demanding wine that without proper attention can be easily underestimated. Very young.

Exceptional example of Central Otago Pinot Noir. Notes of wild thyme characteristic of the area, baking spice, dark cherries. Plush, velvet texture and fleshy tannins — a month ago

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Havoc Farm, Gibbston. Probably the best Pinot I have ever had. No, let me restate that. The best Pinot I have ever had. Vibrant, earthy, minerally finesse, intriguing, complex and surprising. What else do you want a wine to be? Really, liked it!!! Paired it with grilled lamb chops and a home made marion berry based sauce. Yum! — 16 days ago

Moonlight Race Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

This Central Otago 🇳🇿 Pinot Noir offers vibrant red and black fruit notes such as raspberry, black cherry, cranberry, rhubarb, also violet, nutmeg, and black tea.

It’s well-balanced and elegant, albeit a little shy at first. As it opened up, the fruit rounded out and became more expressive and highly enjoyable. 👏👏👏

Vintage 2018. ABV 13.5%.

Calvert Pinot Noir 2019

That case when Pinot Noir is delicious at the young age and is still promising in terms of ageing potential. Sexy, elegant and ripe bouquet of strawberry stew, forest floor, red flowers and mushrooms. Perfectly balanced, friendly and elegant despite 14abv, long evolving aftertaste. Love it!
