Mount Edward
With its small batch single vineyard wines that reflect site and season, Mount Edward puts the best of New Zealand’s Central Otago sub-regions in a glass. What originally began in 1997 as a small personal project for Alan Brady has evolved from producing strictly Riesling and Pinot Noir into a certified organic operation headed up by winemaker Duncan Forsyth and proprietor John Buchanan, producing wines across a number of varieties and styles.



Mount Edward’s vineyards are located in the regions of Gibbston, Lowburn, and Bannockburn, with Gibbston the home to the winery and its Riesling vineyard, The Drumlin. And while Mount Edward wines are sold around the world, its wines, people, and personality, are pure Central Otago.



“We are a bunch of dedicated people growing and making Central Otago wine. Fully committed to an organic approach, we grow grapes on several estate vineyards, across the best sub regions in Central Otago, that collectively produce wines of provenance and pleasure alike,” says winemaker Duncan Forsyth. “Great wine, wine that has personality, wine that reflects its origins, is always grown in the vineyard. We have taken this approach at Mount Edward and all that we do is based on this premise.”
Central Otago
Central Otago is the southernmost wine growing region in the world, located at a latitude of 45 degrees south, on New Zealand’s south island. A spectacular landscape makes the region one of the most scenic wine regions if not in the world then certainly in New Zealand. Central to the region is the tourist destination of Queenstown, which is a great base to make wine trips from.



Heavy mineral deposits in silt loams are typical for the soils in Central Otago, but is unlike any other region in New Zealand. The Otago region is the countries only ‘continental ’ wine growing region.



Pinot Noir is the flagship red varietal, which is very well suited to the regions large diurnal shifts (a large diurnal shift means a big difference between low and high temperatures) and also the regions long, cool and dry autumn. The Pinot Noirs coming out of the Otago region are most often fragrant, lush Pinot Noirs with silky textures and true fruit intensity.



Aromatic whites also thrive, in particular Riesling where anything from bone-dry to very sweet can be made. Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and lesser amounts of Chardonnay is also made to a very high quality. Central Otago is in Jancis Robinson’s top five New World wine producing regions.
