Roaring Meg


Roaring Meg wines are a celebration of place – in this case, the expansive and ruggedly beautiful Central Otago region at the southern end of New Zealand’s South Island. The distinctive name originates from a legendary and enterprising fiery redhead swept up in Central Otago’s gold rush of the 1860’s. Such was the original Roaring Meg’s impact that her name remains widely used on everything from a turbulent stream to the hydro-electric station it powers, as well as our wines. When Mt Difficulty winemaker Matt Dicey decided to explore a different style of Pinot Noir, Roaring Meg’s high spirits and eye for opportunity were a perfect fit for these bold and stylish wines. Produced with Pinot Noir sourced exclusively from vineyards in the Bannockburn and Cromwell Basin, the early drinking style of Roaring Meg wines struck a chord with the public, and the label has been a mainstay at Mt Difficulty ever since.
