Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The warm vintage of 2010 has resulted in aromas of white peach and peach blossom mingled with Bosc pear.

Palate

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, stone fruit driven finish.

Cellaring Potential

Mt Difficulty Estate Pinot Gris will improve for 4-8 years given optimal vintage and cellaring conditions.

Winemaking Note

The fruit was hand harvested in top condition from the 12th to the 20th of April. The fruit was processed in a reductive manner, with the juice settled overnight and racked clean the following morning. The wine was fermented cool to help maximise varietal character. All the components were left on gross yeast lees for four months post fermentation with weekly stirring. This was used to help enhance the complexity and textural aspects of this Pinot Gris. Our 2010 Pinot Gris was bottled in late October.

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.
