Winery Tasting Notes

Floral and ripe stonefruit notes compete in the aroma of this Riesling. On the palate these flavours dance in harmony. Residual sugar (35gL-1) has been retained to balance the high natural acidity. This residual sugar has also fleshed out the mid palate of the wine. This wine will richly reward those who can cellar it.

The Target Gully Riesling is a style crafted to balance residual sugar in perfect harmony with the wine’s natural acidity. The fruit benefited from the cool summer and autumn of 2009, arriving in perfect condition at the winery. The fruit was hand harvested on the 7th of May and carefully processed through the winery – some lees were racked across for fermentation to enhance palate weight further. The wine was fermented cool in stainless steel to retain maximum varietal expression. The fermentation was stopped by chilling in order to balance the natural acidity with residual sugar.

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.
