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 Chardonnay 2015

    Very complex, very concentrated and very good. This has a big hit of grapefruit and lemon citrus. Quite pithy and flinty. The palate has layers and layers of fruit, delivering flavors that follow in the stone fruit and citrus threads seen on the nose. Spicy oak warms up through the finish.

    Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2015

    Often one of the wilder styles in the world of NZ Chardonnay.
    Plenty of struck match and smoky bacon bones, apricot, kumquat and limes, spicy oak, creme caramel and sizzled sage butter. Intense flavour, bright tang of acidity, mainly stonefruit but with a certain richness and weight, nutty and toasty, and distinctly savoury and mealy through the finish, but ripped with acidity, still. Quite a thing.
