This Mount Difficulty Gift Set is a showcase of the 2013 vintage from four individual Central Otago vineyards. All highly rated by Bob Campbell MW, these four Pinots beautifully express a sense of place and careful craft from the Mount Difficulty winery.
This set also includes two Central Otago Pinot Noir glasses from Riedel, to accentuate the experience of the four wines. The gift set is also presented in a gift box with a regional map and a guide to plantings in the region. This set is a perfect gift for any Central Otago or Pinot Noir enthusiast.
'Deeply scented pinot noir with a floral and violet aroma, which is joined by dark cherry, vanilla, coffee, and spicy oak on the palate. A firmly structured wine with powdery tannins giving a pleasantly drying finish and suggesting good cellaring potential.' 96 Points, Bob Campbell. (7/8/2016)
'Flagship pinot noir only produced in exceptional vintages. Plump, fruity pinot noir with plum, dark cherry, spice and anise flavours, with chocolate/mocha oak influence. A rich and concentrated red that’s a pleasure to drink now but has obvious cellaring potential.' 97 Points, Bob Campbell. (7/8/2016)
'Firmly structured pinot noir, with drying tannins restraining plum, dark cherry and savoury, stemmy flavours. Some chocolate/mocha character and a suggestion of spice add extra interest. Best kept for a few years before opening.' 94 Points, Bob Campbell. (7/8/2016)
'Appealing pinot noir with power and intensity. Sweet fruit and alcohol is balanced by firm, ripe tannins that drive a drying finish and promise cellaring potential. Despite its gentle tannic overcoat, the wine is quite expressive revealing floral and dark cherry characters. Obvious cellaring potential.' 95 Points, Bob Campbell. (7/8/2016)
