Expert Reviews

"Elegant wine, slightly lighter than usual but showing some density and power. Floral, cherry, mineral, subtle oak and hints of spice. Attractive sweet fruit is balanced by fine, drying tannins. Nice focus and good length. " Rating 92 - Bob Campbell MW, Australian Gourmet Traveller Magazine (01/Nov/2010)

"Instantly appealing, with a floral, savoury, spicy bouquet. Sturdy and supple, with warm cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent depth and complexity. "4 Stars - Michael Cooper (01/Jun/2010)

"Lovely spicy red cherry aromas. Quite fine. Attractive elegant palate with ripe, red/black cherry flavours of some persistence, well textured fine tannins and refreshing acidity. Will age nicely over the next four years. One of the successful 2008s from this region. " Highly Recommended, Lester Jesberg, Winewise (01/Apr/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes


This wine reflects the nature of a warmer vintage displaying great concentration and balance; black cherry and blackberry dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by Christmas cake spice and liquorice.


The wine has a dark concentrated front palate, which displays these same characters in abundance. The mid palate is fleshy and well textured. The wine finishes with a lovely velvety combination of tannin, fruit and acidity.

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.
