The Mount Edward winery was founded in 1997 and began as a small personal project by a wine lover. They began with a sole focus on traditional production of Riesling and Pinot Noir but soon evolved to find their real calling. They have a focus on progressive growing methods and truly individualised flavours in their wines.
They run along organic lines and it is the pinot noir which is now at the heart of their business, with a variety of other wines grown to bolster their offering. At The Fine Wine Company we have a range of beautiful Mount Edward wines for you to choose from, including fine examples of their white wine.
Aromas of rasberry and blueberrys with herbal savoury notes. On the palate it is a refreshing combination of crunchy refreshing acidity, bright fruit flavours with some undertones of savoury complexity.
A delicate bouquet of limes and exotic florals with perfume nuances and a steeliness on the nose. The flavours of limes, jasmine and minerals are interwoven through a soft-textured, smooth palate kept fresh with mouth watering acidity and a long finish. The finesse and delicacy of the wine is its highlight.
Beautiful aromatics � cherries and bright berryfruits mixed with some darker fruit notes plus hints of herb and spice. On the palate there is that same purity of fruit expression and a smooth and silky texture with just enough tannin to support the the depth and weight of the flavours. Not so much a big wine as possessing power � easily one of the better estate wines to come out of Mount Edward.
Morrison vineyard grows a textural wine built around fine yet lean tannins and delicate fruits. The 2011 vintage displays perfumed aromatics of floral and herbal notes, a sinewy core of both red and dark fruits all over fine grained tannins. Delicate, supple and long in length, this is not a big concentrated style but a more elegant and restrained wine showing balance, power and finesse.
A vibrant nose of apple blossom and orange zest with just a hint of ginger leads to a bracingly fresh palate of apple and lime. With surprising weight and texture, this clean, linear Riesling is a delightful shock to the palate with real purity and eternal finish.
