Mt Difficulty SV Long Gully Pinot Noir 2015 Bannockburn Central Otago
Specific and focused bouquet with aromas of wild thyme and red berry fruits, a steely almost haunting minerality against a back-drop of soft and mild toasty oak, quite complex. Dry, youthful firm textures from the tannins and abundant acid line. Flavours of red berries continue with red apple, cranberry and wild red floral notes. Decent length and complexity - a wine that requires decanting and preferably cellar time first. Best from late 2019 through 2027.
