Expert Reviews

4 Stars. "Meg’s roar is heard across the palate of this Mt Difficulty wine in a range of bright sweet’n’sour notes, apple and pear predomintly. It’s a racy mouthful…a ”crowd pleaser”." Cuisine (NZ) (New Zealand), March 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

The warm dry vintage of 2008 has resulted in aromas of white peach blossom mingled with Bon Chretien pear. The palate displays luscious fruit in the same vein, while the mid palate is full, creamy and well textured. The wine has a rich minerally, stonefruit driven finish.

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.
