FIVE STARS | Michael Cooper
A classic regional expression from one of Central's foremost producers, Mount Difficulty is a study in modern Central Otago winemaking. This 2019 wine is deeply savoury with flavours in the dark cherry spectrum. A fine line of acidity brings freshness and enhances the length of this release. Lovely wine from this classic producer.
The winery writes ""Our 2019 Pinot Noir opens with luscious dark red and black cherry, dried wild herb florals, with a touch of savoury brown spice. As the wine dwells on the palate layers unfurl, revealing silken texture. Fine textured structure rises gracefully whilst being surrounded by a crunchy tang of acidity and a slight mocha note with some brown spice more vibrant red cherry notes on the long finish."
