All about wine
Mt Difficulty wines feature quite frequently in my wine rack, (but not for very long).
I do really enjoy the Pinot Noir produced by Mt Difficulty, which really did put the winery on the map.
Central Otago is well regarded for producing excellent Pinot Noir and the 2010 from Mt Difficulty certainly fits that bill.
This vintage has a lovely ripeness with focused berry fruits. The vine age is now adding nice complexity to the wines. Pinot Noir offers so much, which lends itself well to be paired with different types of food, working particularly well with duck and try also with pork.
Pinot Noir is an excellent summer wine for the red wine drinkers, nice and light, but still filling that need for a more complex wine, with tannins.
