Roaring Meg is the affordable second label of Mt. Difficulty Wines, the source of some of New Zealand’s best Pinot Noirs.
What You Need To Know
Mt. Difficulty Wines pioneered winegrowing in Central Otago, the comparatively sunny and dry region on New Zealand’s South Island that has arguably become its greatest Pinot Noir zone. One of the world’s southernmost wine regions, Central Otago was still mostly sheep farms when Mt. Difficulty Wines was founded on a handshake in the early 1990s by a group of five neighbors, who named their cooperative venture after a local mountain peak. The flagship Mt. Difficulty Pinots are tough to find and expensive, but longtime winemaker Matt Dicey manages to imbue the wines of the “little sister” label, Roaring Meg, with plenty of finesse. His graceful 2011 Roaring Meg Pinot Noir gives a taste of his refined style.
