Mt. Difficulty Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Elegant and intense Pinot Noir from remote South Island vineyards

The climate is more continental than Marlborough’s and has similarities with that of Burgundy. Matt Dicey coaxes ripe cherry fruit flavours, seasons them with toasty savoury oak and balances with tangy acidity. Wonderful with duck.

Elegant and intense

Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir comes from the Bannockburn area in New Zealand’s South Island, which is one of the few places in the world outside Burgundy where the pernickety Pinot Noir grape flourishes.

Mt Difficulty started in 1998 and, as a result of its planting, now owns some of the oldest vines in Bannockburn.

The unique microclimate of the area is partly caused by the imposing Mount Difficulty, which overlooks the southern Cromwell basin and means the region has low humidity and not much rain.

In Bannockburn, hot summers and long cool autumns bring the best out of the Pinot Noir grapes, creating elegant and intense bottles such as this one.
