The Wine
Pipeclay Terrace Pinot Noir is hand crafted in very limited quantities and only released in outstanding vintages. This vintage is distinctive showing classic Pipeclay Stella cherry and blackberry with a slight spice kick and light violet florals. The wine displays lovely flow with a perfumed dark berry entry which moves into a rich and sensuous mid-palate. The wine finishes strongly with a combination of fruit and finely grained structural tannin. It’s an extremely well balanced and graceful wine.


Mt Difficulty is a boutique winery located in Bannockburn in Central Otago, New Zealand. The Bannockburn area is internationally recognized as one of the few places in the world where the pernickety Pinot Noir variety has found a home outside Burgundy. Martinborough in New Zealand and Oregon in the US are the only other regions where Pinot Noir seems to flourish.

The unique microclimate of the Bannockburn area provides hot summers, a large diurnal temperature variation and long cool autumns which bring the best out of the Pinot Noir grapes. This, along with a mix of clays and gravels ideal for viticulture, provides an excellent basis not only for Pinot Noir, but also for Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay.

Mt Difficulty Wines was named after the mountain over-looking Felton Road and the southern Cromwell basin. This mountain is a very important part of the Bannockburn microclimate, providing shelter from the cool winds of the Wakatipu Basin and Gibbston Valley.
