Cracka Review

Hailing from Central Otago, this is a fruit-driven, richer style of Pinot Noir that shows lots of ripe red cherries, spice and dark plums on the nose, with just a hint of earthiness and dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied and plush, with a spiced plum centre, fine tannins, bright acidity, and a fleshy, sumptuous finish. Order up that Peking duck.

Winemaker's Notes

This vintage has produced a Pinot Noir displaying ripe rich aromatics; perfumed black fruits of the forest dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by lovely clove, anise and other brown spice notes. The wine displays lovely elegance and flow with striking precision and clarity. On the palate it kicks off with a supple dark berry entry, moving into a beautifully textured plush mid palate, after which fine elegant textural tannins frame fruit and acidity on a lengthy finish.

Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir will improve for 7-10 years given optimal vintage and cellaring conditions.

2014 Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
The more I come to know Mt Difficulty and see its wines at various stages of life, the more I appreciate that these are pinots engineered for the long-haul. True to the style of the house, this is a release built more around structure and tannin than fruit and generosity, a refreshing and noble counterpoint to the up-front allure that many chase in this region. Tangy red cherries and generous blackberries are united with layers of mixed spice, dried herbs, finely textured tannins and an impressive, enduring acid profile. Oak provides firm tannin support and will benefit from some years to achieve its full potential.
