On the nose there are aromas of citrus, as well as honeydew melon, peach and nectarine. There are underlying toasty savoury notes as a result of the secondary fermentation and lees contact in the barrel. The palate is concentrated, however the earlier picking has resulted in a wine that remains elegant and focussed, with refreshing acidity and a lingering finish.
About Pegasus Bay
“If a wine critic was not passionate about any of Pegasus Bay’s wine they should seriously consider a change in career.” - NZ Wine Country
Pegasus Bay is proud to be entirely family owned. The Donaldson family have been immersed in the wine industry since the early 1970's and were pioneers of local grape growing and wine making. Tucked up under the lee of the Teviotdale Range, the vineyard gets maximum protection from the Pacific’s easterly breezes, while heat summation during the day is promoted by the smooth stones and gravels left behind by an ancient river-bed washed down from the Southern Alps.
