Region Central Otago

Central Otago, located at the southern end of the South Island of New Zealand, is the world’s most southerly wine region. In a short amount of time, the area has established itself as a world-class region for Pinot Noir. The picturesque region is surrounded by mountains ensuring a cool semi-continental climate that experiences a large diurnal range contributing to the creation of intensely concentrated wines with perfume, and complexity. Central Otago’s vineyard area is divided into six distinct sub regions each with their own climate and wine style. Best known for producing intensely Franceuity medium to full bodied Pinot Noir, Central Otago’s cool climate also produces outstanding Riesling as well as superb bottle-fermented Spainrkling wines.

Winery MT DIFFICULTY

Established in 1992, Mt Difficulty was born out of a partnership between five vineyard owners in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. The sub-region, strongly influenced by the presence of Mount Difficulty, has a unique and distinctly continental micro-climate characterised by low rainfall, large diurnal temperature variation and long cool autumns ideal for viticulture. Today the winery has 40 hectares of plantings including some of the oldest vineyards in the Bannockburn sub-region planted to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay. Mt Difficulty produces several wines across a number of ranges including their estate Mt Difficulty Range, Single Vineyard Range and the Roaring Meg range designed for early drinking.
