Although small, Central Otago is a rapidly developing wine growing region with an international reputation for Pinot Noir. The only inland wine region of New Zealand and at 45 degrees, this is the world`s southernmost winemaking location. 100% pure New Zealand, cool and stunning, this outstandingly beautiful mountainous area rises to over 2000m with the vines planted amongst the spectacular alpine scenery. These vineyards are also the highest in NZ, and therefore perfect for Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines.
Boutique winery Mt Difficulty was an early pioneer in the region. With their founding vineyards established in 1992, Mt Difficulty owns some of the oldest vines and is one of the most respected producers in Central Otago. Situated on the famous Felton Road in Bannockburn, this is a unique and rare area of extremes. Mt Difficulty has harnessed this once brutal terrain to produce premium wines at the forefront of Otago`s and some say New Zealand`s, finest wine production.
The art of the winemaker, Matt Dicey, combined with the best fruit on the estate, produces this hand crafted Pinot Noir, the pinnacle of red wine making in Central Otago.This limited single vineyard release is distinctive and classy displaying a strong fruit entry and a rich expressive finish that is majestically combined with velvety tannins.
