MOUNT EDWARD CHENIN BLANC BENDIGO CENTRAL OTAGO 18
Mount Edward Winery is one of the few producers of great Chenin Blanc in New Zealand. In fact, it is one of the few to make Chenin Blanc at all, thanks to winemaker and part-owner of the winery, Duncan Forsyth, who has great respect for this classic white French grape variety.
The Mount Edward Chenin Blanc is made in a dry style, full bodied and succulent thanks to its juicy acidity and mouthwateringly long finish.
This is a great white from the world's most southern wine region.
Mount Edward Wines was founded by the godfather of modern Central Otago wine, Alan Brady, in 1997. Its name comes from Mount Edward and iti s situated at the foot of this mountain in the Gibbston Valley, which is the source of some of the grapes used in its wines. Most of the vineyard source for Mount Edward is further afield, notably in Pisa at the outstanding Morrison Vineyard and in Bannockburn at the Muirkirk Vineyard.
