2017 Pegasus Bay Sauvignon/Semillon
70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillion from 30 year old vines.
Located in arguably New Zealand's most exciting wine region of North Canterbury (more specifically, Waipara), albeit sparsely scattered with wine estates it is at the forefront of interesting and unique wines in NZ. This is due in part to a fabulous free-draining, well protected terroir. Pegasus Bay is run by the Donaldson family who were pioneers in the region and have been involved with local grape growing and winemaking since the 1970's. The whole family are involved in the process from grape to bottle, and a deep respect for the land, with a long term view towards vine and soil health typifies the Donaldson Family's approach to grape growing. Pegasus Bay is an accredited member of the NZWG sustainable viticulture program and are firm believers of using natural methods to combat pests and diseases rather than the application of unnecessary pesticides and herbicides.
What The Critics Say
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS
"An alluring bouquet of white fleshed fruits and fresh green herbs, but then again it’s also tropical fruits and crushed limestone with a whisper of salty air - this is the juxtaposition in action. A very clever bouquet. It is also intense and familiar, seductive and charming. On the palate delicious wine with a core of fruit, vibrant texture with abundant acidity and long steely finish." Drink 2019 - 2026+
94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2016 vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and gorgeously complex, the bouquet shows apricot, beeswax, hazelnut, flint and dried herb characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is beautifully weighted and richly expressed. It is powerful and delectable with ripe fruit intensity together with subtle savoury nuances, finishing impressively long and engaging. $32.00. www.pegasusbay.com. Jan 2019." Drink 2019 - 2024
