Pegasus Bay

Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2016 Waipara Valley, North Canterbury

Intense, vibrant, fruity and varietal bouquet of Pinot Noir. Aromas of toasty wood and spices, plum, dark cherry and some forest berry notes. A distinctive clay, gravel and dry stone mineral layer adding complexity and depth. Fleshy, fruity and dry on the palate with some youthful tannins and acidity to match. Fruit and earth flavours mirror the nose especially the cherry and plum. A light savoury dried herb layer on the finish adds to the length and concentration. A well made wine ready to enjoy. Decant for service with best drinking late 2020 through 2026.
