Drop of the Week: Mt Difficulty Cuvée Pinot Noir 2013
Take home a little piece of Olympic history with this sumptuous, silky pinot noir - the perfect drop for unwinding after a long week.

Inspired by the athletes quest for gold at this year’s Rio Olympics, Mount Difficulty’s Cuvée Pinot Noir is an ode to New Zealand’s dedication to excellence.

“It’s a very special blend from selected parcels of the highest quality from a pioneering Central Otago winery committed to hard work for success,” Dicey says. “For that reason the vintage entirely befits the achievements of the recipients in being among the best three in the world in their chosen sport.

“In tune with the original quest for gold that Central Otago is famed for, we created the Inspiration Cuvée as a tangible way of celebrating the successes of New Zealand athletes at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.”

Every Kiwi medalist will return home with a limited edition bottle from Mt Difficulty and now you too can celebrate your own win with this gorgeous drop.

Mt Difficulty Inspiration Cuvée Pinot Noir 2013 is a selection from four vineyards, some of the oldest in the region, with the aim of allowing the characteristics of Bannockburn to shine in an exceptional vintage. It’s a low volume and distinctive wine that’s an inaugural release. The layered dark Stella cherry and black cherry notes with sweet brown spice reflect the uniqueness of the Bannockburn terroir.
