Ready. Aim. Fire! This is Mt Difficulty’s iconic Target Medium Riesling and it hits the mark every time. Mt Difficulty are one of the king pins of Central Otago. And not just Pinot Noir! These guys prove every vintage they can craft seriously good, medium style Riesling too.

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 grapes flurrish.

Scoring 92/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “Fresh, moderately sweet riesling with lime, and oyster shell charcters. Good balance of vibrant acidity with a mouthwatering finish. Youthful wine with potential. Not a powerhouse but has nice delicacy.”

This is the perfect, slightly sweeter style Riesling to pair with spicy foods, especially Asian cuisine.
