Pegasus Bay

Pegasus Bay 'Aria' Late Picked Riesling 2014 Waipara Valley North Canterbury
Bold and rich scents of honey, syrup, sweet citrus, apple tart tatin and poached orchard fruits. On the palate - lush and juicy with significant acidity and weight, rich, lush and fruity flavours of stone and orchard fruits finishing with a citrus, apple and honey. A delicious wine!

Pegasus Bay 'Finale' Noble Semillion Sauvignon Barrique Fermented 2011 Waipara Valley North Canterbury
Deep golden hues and star bright appearance. Aromas of spice, beeswax and honeycomb; preserved apricots and peaches with citrus peel, very distinctive and packed with energy. On the palate - fantastic! Delicious, honeyed, oozing flavour and texture with huge sweetness equaled by acidity and richness; oak spices, citrus and stone fruit flavours, long finish.

Pegasus Bay 'Prima Donna' Pinot Noir 2012 Waipara Valley North Canterbury
Quite a dense and rich perfume with aromas of crushed roses, red berry fruits, spices and mineral; quite a distinctive layer with the oak and mineral aromas intertwined; as the wine opens up aromas of other red fruits especially plum and red currant begin to emerge; overall complex. On the palate - savoury and dry with flavours of red berry fruits, silty mineral and spicy oak - these features are enhanced by the alcohol also emphasizing the medium+ tannins and acidity - both adding age worthy components; youthful yet lengthy finish; well made. Must be decanted for service though best drinking will likely begin from 2018 - 2025
