Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir 2006

My search for great Pinot took me here. To Central Otago... well to the Barn in McLaren Vale's wine cellar. I was searching for a wine to go with fish. It was winter fresh outside.

The Mt Diff was cherry red, meaty with red fruits of the forest along with blackberry. Tasty, tight and touching on greatness.
I think it has the legs to develop as the fruits start to smear together. My search was well worth it.
