Depending on vintage conditions, Central Otago vineyard Mount Difficulty may make single site Pinot Noirs from Bannockburn vineyards Long Gully, Target Gully or Pipeclay Terrace. In 2011 Long Gully and Target Gully were made. As tastings of vintages going back to 2005 have shown, these are age-worthy pinots. Stability and hence age-worthiness comes in part from maturing vines - the majority of the fruit in the 2011 Long Gully Pinot Noir is from vines that are 16-17 years old.
This wine was one of 12 pinots chosen from around the world for the 2013 Stonier Internatonal Pinot Noir Tasting.
Dark berry fruits with hints of fragrant tea, and then mocha/coffee. A good swirl to give some air lifts the sweeter aromas. Sleek pinot, layers of flavour but also focus. Fruit and acid completely in balance and set in a framework of seriously good tannins. As always, brilliant cellaring proposition.
