 Attractive and deeply fruited Pinot that has impressive black-cherry aromas and flavors with subtly played, spicy oak influence sitting in the background. This has impressive, generous fruit. Drink now. Screw cap.  (12/2018)

 Supple yet quite weighty Pinot Noir with cherry, plum, spice and a hint of fresh herb flavours. Appealing fruit sweetness with a dry and slightly stalky finish. An entry-level Pinot Noir with character.  (4/2019)

Rich red and black fruit, oak spice, and a polished, toasty-smoky edge give this distinctly New-World Pinot an immediate generosity. While it is indeed a more “modern” style, the wine still has excellent refreshing zest and focus to keep you coming back for more. Never cloying, overdone, or heavy, this is a great example of New-World value priced Pinot done right. All the fans of the Russian River out there would be well-advised to branch out with this lovely everyday red from Central Otago.

Everyday Mount Edward, what more could you ask for? This is a $20 bottle of Pinot that puts almost every other Pinot in the store at that price point on notice. Dark cherry fruit, subtle spice, and a whiff of that Central Otago thyme. Supple and fresh with its generous fruit balanced by good acid and just enough tannin.

We've had great success with this Mount Edward entry point Pinot over the last few years. The 2017 is no different and adds to the roster of great everyday Pinot Noir coming from New Zealand. Filled to the brim with vibrant cherry and raspberry tones. the palate is pure silk and plenty of juicy acidity to keep it fresh and focused. This competes with some of the best at twice the price and will enjoy several years of delicious drinking. Why wait though, this is calling my name right now with some seared duck breast and sauteed greens.

The wines of Mount Edwards comes from a band of individuals who label themselves as insubordinate, revolutionist, mischievious, jocular and witty. They’re also really talented wine makers. This group is fully committed to organic agriculture, they employ traditional wine making techniques using natural yeasts with minimal intervention. The resulting wines display elegance, precision, clarity and more importantly, they taste really good. This is a fine little Pinot Noir from the ever on-the-rise Central Otago. There’s no question that New Zealand is carving out its own identity as a Pinot Noir producer. This is an awesome value and well worth a look.

This little gem is relatively dark, with a lush nose of boysenberry and pepper. It is even richer on the palate with dark cherry and black raspberry fruit. A great crossover wine fro those of you who want to branch out from CA Pinot Noir and don't want to spend a fortune to do so!

While the Mount Edward line is a bit bigger, more complex and ageworthy, the TED Pinot Noir is designed to be a bit softer, more supple and utterly drinkable right now. It has a rich bouquet of colaberries, strawberries, cranberries and herbs. It has super smooth tannins and beautiful weight on the palate, but still manages a focused refreshing finish. This is a great deal from one of the best winemakers in the world’s southernmost growing region.

Recently named on "James Suckling Top 100 New Zealand Wines of 2018" list, it's not hard to see why this wine has so much appeal. 'Ted', the nickname for Edward, is meant to be a younger brother to the single vineyard Mount Edward wines. Totally destemmed to maintain mid-palate weight, but remove structure and harsh tannin, this wine is juicy and lively on the palate. Made to be soft, fine, delicate, and approachable, this is an easy crowd-pleasing Pinot choice.
Top Value!
