Expert Reviews

"In perfectly contrasting style to De Bortoli’s textural La Bohème, here’s an energetic gris that’s all about aromatics. Fresh pear fruit, poised lemon zest, mineral structure and a driving, lingering finish fleshed out with some fruit sweetness."Rating 92 - Tyson Stelzer www.tysonstelzer.com (SEP/2011)

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.
