Winemakers trekked down to Central Otago to find the very best expression of Pinot Noir. Having had quite a lot of experience with fruit from the area, for them the sub-region of Gibbston shows Pinot Noir in its most finest form, and therefore they went on a mission to source fruit from a stunning little pocket just underneath the very dramatic and imposing Nevis Bluff. Like their whites; structure, acidity, texture and an element of savouriness are the watchwords that are transposed into this wine, with that classic Gibbston nose of wild herb and briar.

A stellar year for Kelly Washingtons inaugural vintage from the Monte Rosa Vineyard in Gibbston, Central Otago. A cool spring ensured low yields naturally, followed by a warm early summer and very favourable conditions over autumn. The fruit was harvested in pristine condition, showing bright flavours and lifted fragrances, all held together by a vibrant acidity.

Alc: 13.7%

1 x Mount Edward Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

Perfumed with lovely aromatics, there is a range of complexed fruit notes of darker berryfruit, some spice, savoury tones and dried herbs. The 2017 has a silky and lush texture fruit power yet finely balanced with fine tannins throughout and long in flavour. An elegant vintage for Mount Edward and for people who prefer the classics over the blockbuster, that said we had enough warm days to give a definitely a more plush and softness than the preceding few years.

Vinified using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts, and 11 months in French oak – 15 % new – before racking and settling in tank for a further 4 months. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunches, plus several tanks of 100% wholebunch fruit fermentation. No filtration or fining, deposits may form.

Organically grown, made and certified.
