Ted by Mount Edward 2017 Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2016 Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir

12-Oct-2017
The ‘Ted by Mount Edward’ label has been introduced to take the place of the ‘Wanaka Road’ label, a second tier that has been very successful both on-premise and off-premise. The updated packaging is striking and funky, matching the more ‘out-there’ side of the projected image of Mount Edward. Within the bottles is seriously-made wine that reflects the regionality of Central Otago and the varieties and styles made there. Mount Edward has progressed to full BioGro organic certification with its estate vineyards, these being the ‘Morrison’ in Lowburn, ‘Muirkirk’ in Bannockburn and the ‘Drumlin’ in Gibbston. The contract grower vineyards that are employed by Mount Edward are all sustainably managed or in transition to being organic. The ‘Ted by Mount Edward’ wines are made with grower fruit in addition to estate fruit, thus leaving the Mount Edward wines fully organic. As with the former ‘Wanaka Road’ label, winemakers Duncan Forsyth and Anna Riederer aim to deliver high quality and accessibility with the ‘Ted by Mount Edward’ wines to support the Mount Edward brand. Here, I review the new release wines, the 2017 Rosé and Pinot Gris, and 2016 Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. www.mountedward.com
