Pinot Noir
Mt. Difficulty, 2008
Central Otago, New Zealand

Central Otago has become a classic New World wine region known for its rich, silky and complex Pinot Noir. This beautiful region, at the southern tip of the south island in New Zealand, is nestled amongst mountains and shimmering lakes.

Mt. Difficulty is one of the oldest wineries in the area, and yet it was only established in 1998. Whilst a long history of winemaking is important in Europe, many of the top wines of New Zealand have gained international fame in just a few decades. It’s the quality in the bottle that counts, and this boutique winery consistently delivers exceptional Pinot Noir.

On the nose, the wine shows ripe red cherry fruit. The palate exhibits elegant flavours of red berries and sweet spices, is light to medium in body, and the tannins are soft and smooth. Well balanced, light and elegant, this is classic Pinot.

Food and wine pairing: Perfect for sipping by itself, and pairs well with richer fish dishes, and light weight red meat dishes.
