Mt Difficulty 2018 is a 100% Pinot Gris blended from Mt Difficulty’s Bannockburn vineyards, Central Otago. Fruit was hand-harvested and processed in a reductive manner, with the juice settled overnight and racked clean the following morning. Fermented cool to help maximise varietal character. All the components were left on gross yeast lees for 5 months post fermentation, with weekly stirring to help enhance complexity and textural aspects. Ripe stonefruit blossom, peach and tangerine mingled with underlying pear notes. The palate displays these same characters in abundance focusing on ripe succulent peach notes, while the mid palate is full, creamy and well textured. The wine has a rich, spice infused finish.
