This wine exhibits a lovely mix of red and black berry fruits with further complexity gained from the spiciness of the oak. 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. Roaring Meg is recognised as one of the greatest bargains in premium Otago Pinot Noir
|Winery||Mt. Difficulty Wines|
The grapes for this wine come from selected premium Central Otago vineyards. The fruit was all de-stemmed to enhance the natural fruit characters of Central Otago.
Mt. Difficulty was established in New Zealand’s trendy Central Otago region in 1998 as a boutique winery by four Bannockburn vineyard owners, with the aim of making a super-premium Otago Pinot Noir.
The Bannockburn soil with a mix of clays and gravels, ideal for viticulture, combined with the unique microclimate brought by the mountain itself is the perfect terroir for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. After a few short years of success Mt. Difficulty is now recognised as one of the leading Pinot Noir producers of the region if not the whole country.
