Mt Difficulty proves you don't need to go to Burgundy to make great pinot noir
The Bannockburn area is internationally recognised as one of the few places in the world outside Burgundy where the pernickety pinot noir variety has found a home. The unique microclimate of the Bannockburn area is partially created by the presence of Mount Difficulty, which overlooks the southern Cromwell basin and provides low rainfall and humidity for the region. This “continental” style climate, combined with unique soils, makes the region ideal for growing pinot noir, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc and pinot gris.
