Earth’s End and Mt Edward ‘Muirkirk’ Pinot Noirs 2010

13-Jun-2012
The core of Duncan Forsyth's business of Mount Edward wines is making Pinot Noir. Mount Edward Pinot Noir captures the essence of Central Otago by utilising fruit from a range of fruit sources including the home Gibbston area, the Lowburn and Bannockburn districts. In doing so, the label is one of the most respected of the region. Duncan has, as most wine producers do, created different tiers and specialist expressions of Pinot Noir. The second label ‘Earth's End' offers real value, and the single vineyard wines from Mount Edward encapsulate terroir. They can be seen as extremes of what Duncan Forsyth makes with Pinot Noir. Here, I review the 2010 releases of the ‘Earth's End' and ‘Muirkirk' Bannockburn Pinot Noirs. The vintage is regarded as an exceptional one for Central Otago, generally producing significantly structured wines. www.mountedward.com
