Tasting notes

This is one of the great Pinot Noirs coming out of Central Otago, a region in the centre of the South Island which has developed an enviable reputation for producing elegant age-worthy wines. With fresh, ripe morello-cherry flavours, it also has structure and tangy acidity. Wonderful with duck.


Established in 1992, Mt Difficulty Wines is home to some of Central Otago’s oldest and most revered vineyards. Situated along Felton Road in the famous sub-region of Bannockburn, Central Otago, this unique area of extremes is ideally suited to crafting wines that speak with a sense of place.

Expert reviews

"My wife and I had the great pleasure of visiting this winery a few years ago and we were absolutely bowled over by the quality of their wines."

Perfect food match

Oven baked honey glazed duck with cheesy mash and red cabbage with Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Oven baked honey glazed duck with cheesy mash and red cabbage

Rich, sweet flavours of the duck are beautifully matched to the floral, fruity notes if this New Zealand Pinot Noir. The fresh acidity of the wine cuts through the creamy mash like a dream.
