About The Wine
Mt Difficulty is one of the most recognisable names in Central Otago wine.
With a towering reputation for producing premium Pinot Noir, the Bannockburn Pinot Noir is the standard bearer for the range.
This wine is a blend of multiple plots of the same vineyard managed by the Mt Difficulty team. It's a powerful Pinot Noir which showcases the great terroir of the Bannockburn sub-region.
This is a wine you can cellar for a decade or drink tomorrow. In either case, it will be a great drinking experience.
About Mt Difficulty
Mt Difficulty is comprised of many vineyards, all across Central Otago - from Gibbston to Bendigo.
The Central Otago region has a fantastic climate and unique soils perfect for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
Despite making fantastic wines of the above varieties, they still like to push the limits and experiment with their winemaking. Current Chief winemaker Greg Lane, hailing from South Australia, earned himself the title of New Zealand Young Winemaker of the Year in 2018 and has no plans of holding back on establishing Mt Difficulty as the benchmark of Central Otago winemaking.
