Mt Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot No 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine exhibits a lovely mix of red and black berry fruits with further complexity gained from oak spice. The wine has a sweet berry entry which displays these same characters in abundance. Tannins rise gracefully out of the mid-palate to finish the wine. These are balanced by the wine’s acidity and fruit, to produce a long fruit driven finish.

The Mt Difficulty brand started in 1998 with a very small production of Pinot noir and Chardonnay. This Pinot noir went on to win a Gold medal at the 1999 Air New Zealand wine awards, with the Chardonnay attaining Silver. This was a great result for a startup winery and shows the potential of Central Otago for these varieties. Previously the grapes from our vineyards were included in many top-performing wines from other Central Otago wineries. The four Mt Difficulty vineyards are privately owned by the same people who started and own the Mt Difficulty brand and winery. The initial joint venture has grown into a leading New Zealand boutique winery with export markets in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore, with the rest of the world to come!

Smart Buy - Bright and tangy, with a peppermint candy note wafting through the cherry and raspberry flavours, lingering easily against fine tannins. Drink now through 2015. Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Otago in New Zealand. 2008 Mt. Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Noir 750ml
