Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This Riesling is the first Mount Edward Riesling just  from our Morrison vineyard,  organic and true to style. Riesling from Morrison is off dry with delicious flavours that have orange/grapefruit peel at its core, this mineral pith like texture is the Morrison vineyard marker. A sorbet like wine, refreshing and perfect for summer and beyond.

Soils are fine loess over schist gravels on both sites, cropped at an average of 7t/ha. Harvested mid april at an average brix of 22. Winemaking; whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, using wild yeast and minimal temperature control, aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 8g/l. This Riesling is medium weight in an off dry style.

Floral and citrus aromas, flavours of lemons, limes, and grapefruit characters, underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity.

We aim to produce Riesling of purity, precision and balance with a long resonance of flavour. The wine is drinking extremely well now but can be cellared with confidence for five to seven years."

Lisa Perotti Brown, The Wine Advocate
"Duncan Forsyth (Mount Edward winemaker) is one very inspired and skilled Riesling producer – a fanatic in fact (which is what it takes to makes truly great Riesling in NZ or anywhere for that matter)."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The classy 2017 vintage was grown at Lowburn. Full of personality, it is a pale lemon/green, lemon-scented wine, crisp and dryish (7 grams/litre of residual sugar), with excellent intensity of peachy, slightly spicy flavours, a minerally thread, and a finely balanced, very long finish. A dynamic young wine, it should be long-lived."

4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Paler straw-yellow colour, The nose is softly full with gentle aromas of yellow florals and nuances of ripe, tropical and citrus fruits, unfolding exotic elements. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features an array of florals and citrus fruits, and exotic elements. The mouthfeel is broad and accessible with lighter concentration, but bright acidity. Fruit from the ‘Morrison’ vineyard, Lowburn. 12.5% alc. and 8 g/L RS."

90/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, September 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Honey-butter, green apple, ripe lime scents – a touch forward perhaps with some savoury elements in the mix. Much fresher to taste, zingy acidity under ripe apple flavours, touches of nuttiness again. Quite complex, though the sense of forwardness is kind of hanging over the wine. Good drinking."
