Wine of the Month: Mt. Difficulty Pinot Noir 2009

This wine reflects the nature of a cooler vintage displaying great concentration and balance; red fruits of the forest dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by black cherry, Christmas cake spice and savoury herb. The wine has a dark concentrated front palate, which displays these same characters in abundance. The mid palate is fleshy and well textured. The wine finishes with a lovely combination of sinewy tannin, fruit and acidity.

Mt Difficulty Estate Pinot Noir will improve for 7-10 years given optimal vintage and cellaring conditions.

The wine can only be special ordered at Australian Wine Club for home delivery and is not available at the Swedish Systembolaget.

Cost: 369 SEK (Australian Wine Club)
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
Aging: Can be opened from 2011-2016
