The grapes for the wines that carry the Mt Difficulty label have traditionally been sourced from vineyards situated on the South side of the Kawarau River at Bannockburn. The Growers Series is a recent addition to the Mt Difficulty portfolio, allowing us to showcase the terroir of different sub-regions. The Lowburn Chardonnay is a blend of two “Growers Series” vineyards, Packspur and Golden Hills. Both are situated in the Lowburn area to the north of Cromwell.

Winery Tasting Notes
Tight focused citrus and white peach notes, with lovely floral nectarine blossom. There is a delicious interplay of citrus and stonefruits with white blossom adding interest.
The linearity and focus of the wine defines the palate; with citrus framing the acidity, and ripe phenolic notes on the finish.
