Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard Long Gully Pinot Noir 2016 750ml

Mt Difficulty Long Gully Pinot Noir 2016 is handcrafted in very limited quantities and only released in outstanding vintages. Long Gully Pinot Noir is an engaging compilation for the senses. A vibrant bouquet of black cherry and wild herb give way to a supple palate. Flavours of cherry and sweet brown spice are supported by finely textured tannins leading to a long, satisfying finish.

CELLARING POTENTIAL:

Mt. Difficulty Long Gully Pinot Noir is expected to age beautifully for 10-15 years with proper cellaring.

VINTAGE 2016

The 2016 growing season was marked by an extended unstable weather pattern from October through March. Lower than average rainfall coupled with unusually warm days through spring led to an early bud burst and flowering. In January, a cool, windy system slowed down the vines’ progress and delayed verasion. A very warm February was followed by an uncharacteristically overcast March. Finally, April delivered ample sunshine and stable conditions. Ultimately, we began picking later than usual but harvest was condensed to just 24 days.

Alc: 14.2%
