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.
