Mt Difficulty Ghost Town Pinot Noir 2016 is handcrafted in very limited quantities from Difficulty's Bendigo Vineyard in Central Otago. Dark cherry and wild berry with lashings of savoury brown spice, whilst lavender floral notes add in detail and brightness. Dense, tight, dark berry notes lead into a compact palate. Pure class all the way here.
Cameron Douglas writes "Familiar and welcoming scents of Otago Pinot Noir with red and dark cherry fruit, dried raspberry and plum. A layer of dried herb and undergrowth and for this example a clay/rock mineral layer. Dry, fruity and fleshy on the palate with flavours reflective of the nose, plenty of acidity and finer tannins finishing with a layer of wood smoke and spice."
