Winery notes
"Vermouth - a summer starter - over ice, a cut of orange or any way you choose ...and your afternoon is made. At Mount Edward we are just putting the finishing touches on the first Vermouth to be produced in NZ (we believe). Need further convincing?

Vermouth has started a comeback in both Australia and Stateside of late, as an aperitif/cocktail, more than anything Martini based.
Inspiration to produce our own Vermouth came from visit Anna and I made to Australia last year when Mount Edward was invited to exhibit at Rootstock, a cutting edge organic/natural wine fair in Sydney. We came away ideas brimming. It’s a natural fit for us as Vermouth is wine, fortified and infused with botanicals. The better the wine and the more local the botanicals, the better the taste it would seem.

Our Vermouth is based around Riesling and Chenin. It's dry with the dominant aromas and botanical flavour of Elderflower, picked straight from our gardens at home on Felton Rd – plus it's organic so is obviously good for you as well."
John Saker
"The Mount Edward Vermouth, made by Forsyth and winemaker Anna Riederer, has a base wine comprising a 50/50 blend of chenin blanc and riesling. Elderflower (grown organically around Forsyth's home) is prominent in a botanical mix that also features wormwood, coriander, clove and a small amount of thyme. The result is a fragrant drink with lifted white peach, dried grass and wood spice flavours, along with a whisper of coriander, ginger and coconut cream. It's very much a vinous style of vermouth – the wine remains the thing. It's a perfect summer gin martini vermouth."
