Pegasus Bay

Pegasus Bay Gewürztraminer 2017 Waipara Valley, North Canterbury

Bold, precise and pungent aromatics of Gewürztraminer with suggestions of tropical fruits and red apples, pineapple, fresh lychee and white peach. There’s plenty of spice with fragrances of baking spice and sweet herbs then wild flowers and white rose. A weighty, rich, creamy and very engaging example with focus and concentration, flavours that reflect the nose, decent acid line and long finish. Drink now and through 2022+.

Pegasus Bay Finale Barrique Matured Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon 2017 Waipara Valley, North Canterbury

Deeply golden hues lead to aromas and flavours of apricots and quince, caramelised apple and bees-wax and with moments of tropical flowers and manuka honey the bouquet is intense and seductive. Full-bodied, creamy, intense and very sweet. With contrasting acidity the sweetness calms to reveal a deliciously sweet wine with integrated oak spices and natural fruit spice, some sultana and baked custard. Long finish, immensely satisfying and well made. Drink now and through 2027+.
