Welcome to Mount Edward's e-cellar door
In 1997 as a Central Otago pioneer founded winery, we started small, making one wine as a family business, now, decades later, we are still a family business, thriving, with our own vineyards, style and ethos.
Our heart is about making wines that are delicious, textural, subtle, moreish wines. To keep the head happy we grow unique and small batch wines from single vineyard sites, Pinot Noir to Gamay, Chardonnay to Chenin and much more.
Driven by a desire to be progressive, individual and good at what we do.
We are Bio gro certified organic, owning all our fruit across 5 estate vineyards, all in Central Otago, collectively producing wines of provenance and pleasure alike.
We enjoy breaking new ground, the first in New Zealand to make vermouth, have wine on tap, early adopters of skin contact and minimal sulphur, we continue to seek out the unique. Our choices, style and techniques reflect, we believe, a growing demand for individual and authentic wine.
Traditional winemaking, a healthy regard to science, all without a rulebook telling us what to do or how to look. The less you do the better the wine is a truism that guides us via minimal intervention such as no fining, filtration, aids or additives.
Our motto, Grow your Own Way, is with a care to all around you, surround yourself with people who think the same and enjoy yourselves.
Wine, people, place are all part of this equation, reflected in how we grow, the places you see our wine, our community involvement to what you see in front of you.
Talk to us, visit us, pick up a bottle and see how we all fit together.
Mount Edward Pinot Noir 2019 Central Otago
Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) 95pts
Gorgeously styled and refined, the wine shows ripe cherry, smoked game, mushroom and
toasted nut characters on the nose. The palate delivers terrific weight and flow, wonderfully
complemented by silky texture and fine polished tannins. Beautifully supple and plush with
excellent structure and length.
At its best: now to 2034.
