Crushed and Cured

Mount Edward, Ted Pinot Blanc, Central Otago, New Zealand, 2019


Pear and citrus aromas are followed by flavours of stone fruit, some savoury notes with a delicate creamy like texture, all underpinned by mineral notes and refreshing acidity. This wine is dry in style.

Mount Edward's winemaking approach is traditional. They are Organically certified in both vineyard and winery, although the wines themselves are not certified as organic in the UK. They use natural yeasts and minimal intervention at all stages to produce wines which reflect the vintage from which they came. The Central Otago climate and soils are unique with the parent rock being glacially derived schist.

The growing season is warm and dry with cool nights. It is a short season however, with a risk of frost early and late and they actively restrict crop levels managing the vine canopy to achieve balance and uniform ripeness regardless of variety.
