Boutique winery, Mt Difficulty, was an early pioneer in the Central Otago region. With their founding vineyards established in 1992, Mt Difficulty owns some of the oldest vines and is one of the most respected producers in the region. Situated on the famous Felton Road in Bannockburn, this is a unique and rare area of extremes. Mt Difficulty has harnessed this once brutal terrain to produce premium wines at the forefront of Otago’s, and some say New Zealand’s, finest wine production.
From the mountainous region of Central Otago in New Zealand`s south island, which is famous for the production of aromatic white wines, this is a typical concentrated and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is a fruit cocktail of aromas including white pear, passionfruit and melon. Then intense passionfruit, citrus, grass and gooseberry explode on the palate leading to a lovely rich, textured and dry finish.
A great aperitif, this wine will go well with grilled chicken and lemon sauce, and lightly grilled snapper.
