    Roaring Meg is the secondary label of Central Otago’s Mt.Difficulty and named after a local stream. Far out, not another wine named after a bloody stream, river or tree!

    In fact this stream and the one that neighbours it, Gentle Annie, actually get their name from two young ladies that “serviced” the area back in the late 1800s when gold mining in Central Otago was thriving.

    Young men headed to the region in search of fortune – Meg and Annie were two ladies of the night that provided the guys with an after hours service! Roaring Meg, what a nickname. Need we say more?

    This is Central (Otago) style Sauvy and in the words of Cuisine magazine’s judges (who gave it 4 out of 5 Stars) – “Mt Difficulty’s popular second label goes from strength to strength. This 2014 is enlivened by having a little flinty complexity surrounding its core of grapefruit and stonefruit. It has depth and a touch of class.”

    Pair Meg lightly chilled with fish and seafood dishes between now and 2018.
