Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard Target Gully Central Otago Pinot Noir

The highest in altitude and latest harvested of Mt Difficulty’s single vineyards also enjoys the largest proportion of whole bunches in the ferment, lending notes of exotic spice and dried herbs. These take some time to emerge from such a focused, precise and coiled Target Gully. As one of the later released Central Otago pinots, its reticence reflect its substantial potential in the cellar. In time, suggestions of black cherry, blackberry, dark plums and liquorice emerged from a cage of firm, fine tannins. Profound persistence, balance and seamlessness promise great things.
