Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard Long Gully Pinot Noir 2005, Central Otago

imagesI do like the wine from Mt Difficulty, and this wine is consistent with the quality I expect from them.

It is a lovely ruby red wine that has a huge nose of black berry fruits and plum. It is the sort of wine that gives me a smile on my face as I enjoy the aroma.

To taste, it is quite dry with a little bit of acid, very full bodied and packed with fruit intensity that lingers on the palate. It is a lot drier than the younger estate wine I have recently been drinking and the berry flavour is more smooth.

It is undoubtedly a lovely drop.
