100% Pinot Noir Located in Bendigo on Chinaman's Terrace.
Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard wines are a celebration of time and place. Located in Bendigo on Chinaman's Terrace, once home to over 2000 Chinese miners during the 1860s and 70s, Ghost Town vineyard comprises of 13ha planted in mature Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Syrah. Planted in 2001, Ghost Town is at a high elevation rising from 340m to 382m. It potentially sees slightly warmer temperatures than Bannockburn during the peak of the ripening period, although harvest can be a week or so later than our Bannockburn vineyards due to this elevation. Ghost Towns unique personality, together with minimal winemaking intervention, has resulted in a Pinot Noir that displays a savoury texture and spice detail.
Dark cherry and wild berry with lashings of savoury brown spice, whilst lavender floral notes add in detail and brightness. Dense, tight, dark berry notes lead into a compact palate. The wine finishes with savoury structural tannins enveloping the wine. Dark cherry flavours flow right through the structure and finish the wine with a flourish.
