Pegasus Bay

Pegasus Bay ‘Virtuoso’ Chardonnay 2016 Waipara North Canterbury

Bold, complex and alluring bouquet with strong statements of oak, toasty wood spices , cashew and brazil nut, baked yellow stone fruits, burnt butter and heirloom grapefruit. Complex, youthful and rich. On the palate - dry and packed with flavours suggested by the nose - grapefruit, yellow stone-fruits, nut and a whisper of banana. Full-bodies, lengthy and persistent finish. Youthful with plenty of acidity and some wood tannins. Lots to like with this example, decant for service with best drinking from today and through 2026.
