Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir Canterbury/ Waipara Valley

“Upon release the wine is bright ruby in colour, the bouquet a rich tapestry of both red and dark fruit, as well as savoury notes. Heady aromas of cherries, plums and pomegranate swell from the glass, flanked by a smouldering column of cinnamon, mushroom, truffle and leather. The mouthfeel is generous yet supple, with a pelt of velvety ripe tannins that adds structure and length. Well-judged acidity completes the perfect partnership, giving balance and setting up for a long and harmonious finish. ” Pegasus Bay Winery

95/100 5 Stars – Bob Campbell MW
“Made with 40% whole-bunches. Spent 18 months in French oak barriques (40% new). Complex pinot noir that is a little closed at this stage, although it opened up as it sat in the glass. Dark berry, cassis, violet, mixed spice, new leather and spicy oak flavours supported by firm, ripe tannins”

92 points Wine Advocate for 2018 vintage “Peg Bay’s 2018 Pinot Noir boasts an attractive mix of aromas, ranging from brown sugar and dried spices to plummy fruit and brighter notes of cherries and redcurrants. Medium to full-bodied, it’s concentrated and muscular, with vibrant acids and firm (but ripe) tannins. Unlike many New Zealand Pinot Noirs, I expect this will last well beyond a decade.”
