Overview

Floral and ripe stonefruit notes compete in the aroma of this Riesling. On the palate these flavours dance in harmony. Some residual sugar (30gL-1) has been retained to balance the slightly lower 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.

Expert Reviews

The 2014 Target Gully Riesling offers aromas of white peaches, fresh pears and lemon curd with nuances of dill seed, fresh herbs and acacia honey. Medium-sweet (44 g/l of residual sugar) in the elegantly fruited mouth with plenty of crisp acidity to balance, it has a long graceful finish. Rating 89 – Drink by 2018, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com (DEC/2014).

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.
