Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir – one of the king pins of Central Otago Pinot. Never one to rely on its reputation, every vintage this wine shows exactly why Central Otago is now regarded as one of the hottest regions in the world for guzzlers of premium Pinot.
Named after the mountain that over looks the vineyard. Yawn, not another wine that draws inspiration from a nearby river, mountain or bush!
But this mountain plays a big part in producing this world class wine. It helps block the cool winds from Wakatipu Basin and Gibbston Valley and in turn helps the Pinot Noir grape, which can be a fussy little bugger to grow at the best of times, flurrish.
Drink Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir now or chuck it in the cellar for the next 7-10 years. Looking to pair it with food? You’ll be wanting to open this with with lamb, duck and game dishes.
