    New Zealand Pinot's are always one of my favorites and this bottling from Mount Edward perfectly illustrates why. They're such amazing values and you get fantastic wine without paying an arm and a leg. Complex and aromatic with dusty black cherry, pink rose petals and warm spicy notes on the nose. The palate is balanced and the lively acidity gives this punch. The tannins are fine and gentle, making this a great wine to sip alone or with dinner. Great buy!

    Classic Central Otago nose; dark cherry dusted with wild thyme polished with just a whisper of oak spice. Texturally this does what only Pinot can do, it is broad, soft round yet taught and focused with the right amount of tannin and acid to support but not intrude. A rich and dry Pinot with lots of lingering berry and spice notes. It is charming now and I think will just get better and better.

    Could this be the best ever Mount Edward Pinot Noir? It's fairly early to say but it might just be! This is showing beautifully right out of the bottle; a perfect varietal mix of bright, floral, perfumed, exotic fruit combined with wild thyme, brambles and earthy nuances that are utterly seductive. Central Otago Pinot Noir almost always has great fruit but very few have the layers and complexity this wine possesses. On the palate the texture is silky and svelte; fresh, juicy and expressive as a young wine but clearly packed with character and intrigue that will continue to unfold for many years to come. Mount Edward has long been a staff favorite and perennial best seller here at K&L and this wine will no doubt cement that position - it's rocking wine I couldn't be happier recommending.

    I can't possibly think of a better example of top quality Pinot Noir from Central Otago. Winemaker Duncan Forsyth has made every right move here. This wine is fresh, elegant, and super expressive. The balance of fresh fruit and dusky tannin is spot on and the minerality from the tight soils of the region punches through. I was truly blown away by this one and am excited to see the critics agree with me. This is a winery that should be a household name and is far and away one of the top in the region.

    Lifted aromas of ripe red cherries, followed by a bouquet of fresh herbs, soil, and cola. On the palate, red and dark berry flavors are complemented by tertiary notes of cherry candy and cola once more. I find the soft and plush finish quite appealing in this Central Otago pinot noir. Drink now; will continue to drink nicely over the next 3-5 years

    There is a great perfume here, with deep red fruit and a spiciness that could put it in the Côte de Nuits. The palate is almost effortless with great purity, bright acid, crunchy red fruit, and impressive depth. It lingers with notes of baking spices and stays light on its feet through a compelling finish. If I had the patience, I would watch this evolve over the next five to ten years. But as good as it is now, and at this price, it's going to be difficult to resist. Another superb effort from the folks at Mount Edward.
