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 2015

    Sophisticated, complex and very enticing bouquet. A mix of white apricot and honeysuckle, kaffir-lime and lemon honey, fermented flowers and ginger-spice.
    Dry, complex and layered on the palate, high acidity is contrasted by a little residual sweetness, honey tones and a core of fruit. Complex lengthy finish - a fantastic wine.

    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2015

    A very powerful and essence-like expression of pickled lime, preserved lemon and baked peach fruits. The structure is impeccably judged, reining in massive amounts of flavor perfectly.

    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2015

    Aromas of beeswax and a hint of jasmine with a deep golden colour. Rich and complex layers of flavour - ripe grapefruit, marmalade, quince and clover honey. Just off-dry.

    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2015

    Dry, flavoursome riesling with honey, toast, lime, ginger and floral flavours. Quite a weighty example, with a drying backbone of phenolics and gentle acidity. A rich and complex wine that should develop well.
