Winery Details

    Pegasus Bay is a family-owned and run business within the Waipara Valley, led by patriarch and Neuroscientist Ivan Donaldson. Free draining and low fertility soils produce low yields of high quality, flavourful grapes, which fully express the qualities of Pegasus Bay’s unique setting. The range of wines is led by diverse and ageworthy styles of Pinot Noir and Riesling, with highly expressive Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon blends complementing the portfolio.

Press Review

    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2017

    It is a dry style but late picked and sees botrytis affect the grapes. Complex, is the by-word.

    Complex, yes. Texture is crackling and lashed with nutty, mushroomy, honey and dry citrus characters, the bouquet a posie of floral, sweet, savoury too. Such good energy in this wine, layers of flavour and texture, chew and pucker, zing and juiciness. No wallflower, it’s an assertive and wild, wonderful ride. Brilliant really.

    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2017

    Medium to light, bright yellow colour, with a rich, honey and stone fruit aroma, apricot and peach as well as preserved lemon and smoky botrytis overtones. A hint of reduction. Very complex. The palate is rich and full-flavoured, intense and expansive, its bulk augmented by plentiful tannins. Not completely dry, but certainly well balanced. It's quite Alsatian in style: powerful, concentrated and rewarding.
