The grapes for the wines that carry the Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Estate label are subject to two strict criteria: they are managed by our viticultural team and must be sourced from Bannockburn vineyards - the south side of the Kawarau River in the southern Cromwell basin. Mt Difficulty has three plantings of Sauvignon Blanc which fulfil these criteria; on Templars Hill, Mansons Farm and Saffron. Templars Hill soils vary across the vineyard from a mixture of heavy Scotland Point clay soils to drought-prone coarse gravel Bannockburn soils (classified as man-made due to the sluice mining). Mansons Farm has a small area of Bannockburn soil but is mostly comprised of Lochar Soils, which are ideally suited to viticulture. Saffron is predominantly comprised of Cromwell sands.
