Mt. Difficulty 2011 Bannockburn, Target Gully, Pinot Noir

Target Gully Pinot Noir is hand crafted in very limited quantities and only released in outstanding vintages. This vintage shows broad textured red cherry and berry fruits alongside a distinctive liquorice / anise spice character. The wine displays a dense supple red fruit of the forest entry, which moves into a rich and sensuous mid-palate then finishes strongly with a combination of fruit and finely grained tannin. The wine moves seamlessly and lithely on the palate. Mt Difficulty Target Gully Pinot Noir will improve for 10 -15 years given optimal cellaring conditions.
