Winemaker Notes

The upfront aromas and flavours suggest raspberry, pomegranate, black cherry, purple plum, chocolate and spice. These overlie savoury hints of barbecued meats, grilled mushrooms and black olive tapenade. It is richly textured and mouth filling with powerful but velvety tannins that flow evenly through the palate, helping to draw out the lingering aftertaste. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years.

Critical Acclaim

D 95
Decanter
Animated and vibrant, with oodles of floral nuance backed by firm tannins. This gives it suave structure and poise, showcasing layers upon layers of intensity which unfold harmoniously. Extremely evocative of pinot. A captivating rounded and silky style; the palate is broad, savoury and awash with black fruit, with beguiling rose petal and ginger spice notes. The bright acidity and subtle oak give a charming balance to this wine, making it long and satisfying. Plump, voluptuous and generous on the nose with mounds of crunchy red fruit. Nicely clean and fresh with an enchanting palate of sumptuous black plums and alluring rich spices.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby coloured, the 2013 Pinot Noir reveals expressive black cherry, mulberry and red currant jelly notes on the nose with hints of tar, black loam, balsamic and dried Provence herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has elegant styling with gentle savoury and red berry preserves characters framed by a lively backbone and chewy tannins, finishing with earthy nuances.
BH 90
Burghound.com
A trace of herbal tea can be discerned on the fresh, cool and bright nose that combines notes of cranberry, cherry and plum with those of spice and soft floral nuances. There is good verve and detail to the delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors that deliver solid depth and length on the ever-so-slightly tangy finale.

Pegasus Bay  Pegasus Bay Winery Winery Video
Pegasus Bay was established by the Donaldson family who were pioneers of the Canterbury wine industry. Professor Ivan Donaldson, a consultant neurologist, planted one of the region’s first vineyard in the mid 1970’s. Ivan quickly saw the huge potential for grape growing in the region and in 1985 established what is now Pegasus Bay’s home vineyard in the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury along with his wife Christine and their four sons.

Three of their four sons have since joined the business. Matthew, their eldest son is wine making. Their youngest son Paul is General Manager while another son Edward is Marketing Manager and along with his wife Belinda runs the highly acclaimed winery restaurant which has been awarded NZ’s top winery restaurant for 5 consecutive years in the Cuisine Magazine NZ restaurant of the year awards, and has been awarded a coveted Chefs Hat in 2015.

The estate’s primary focus is Pinot Noir and Riesling. The home vineyard was planted on the north facing terraces of the Waipara Valley on free draining river gravels. The site is ultra low yielding and produces fruit of rare concentration. Structure and texture however are hallmarks of the estate’s highly individual wines. The home vineyard is now 30 years old where the fruit is exclusively sourced.

Recent accolades include receiving a 5 star rating by Robert Parker where he named Pegasus Bay one of New Zealand’s top 5 estates, rated by Matthew Dukes as one of the worlds most iconic 100 wines estates, named Canterbury’s top producer by Michael Cooper.

On the central eastern coast of the South Island, Canterbury includes a collection of small and varied subregions. The region is cool and dry with low rainfall and light, infertile soils. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are well-suited here, with Pinot Gris coming in third place.
