Expert Reviews

“Refreshing lime and mint characters offer instant pleasure. In the mouth this wine is juicy and almost moscato-like in its sweetness profile, lush in texture with crunchy acidity. Another delicious example of how well suited Central Otago is to growing riesling, this time from premium producer Mt Difficulty. Medium”

Rating 4 Star - John Belsham, Cuisine Magazine (FEB/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


Fragrant floral notes compete with citrus and apple in the aroma of this Riesling.


Floral citrus characters introduce this wine to the palate. A moderate amount of residual sugar (40gL-1) has been retained to balance the slightly higher acidity from a warmer season. This residual sugar has also fleshed out the mid-palate of the wine. This wine will richly reward those who can cellar it.

Cellaring Potential

Mt Difficulty Target Riesling will improve for 6 - 9 years given optimal cellaring conditions.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Mt Difficulty is a boutique winery located in Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand. The Bannockburn area is internationally recognised as one of the few places in the world where the pernickety Pinot Noir variety has found a home outside Burgundy.

The unique microclimate of the Bannockburn area provides hot summers, a large diurnal temperature variation and long cool autumns, which brings out the best of Pinot Noir grapes. This, along with a mix of clays and gravels ideal for viticulture, provides an excellent basis not only for Pinot Noir but also for Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
