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 2019
    Poor flowering followed by near-perfect weather resulted in a small crop of intensely flavoured grapes in perfect condition. From ungrafted 30-year-old-plus vines and a very favourable vintage, it’s a smooth-textured chardonnay with white peach, lemon curd, grapefruit and spicy oak flavours. Appealing purity and power. A sophisticated and complex wine.

    Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2019
    Superbly complex and inviting with ripe stone fruit, grapefruit, gun smoke and roasted hazelnut aromas, it's powerful and richly expressed on the palate offering outstanding depth and textured mouthfeel. Great presence with a prolonged gratifying finish. Rating: 95 Points

    Gunflint, bonfire embers, preserved lemon, moving to tropical fruits, baking spices & warm bread. Incredible shaft of acidity running through this giving drive and vividness. There’s a sense of fineness and reserve to this yet no mistaking the underlying power. Great structure with flecks of grapefruit on the long, beguiling close.
    Rating: Excellent to Outstanding

    Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2019
    This is one of the South Island’s most powerful, full-bodied, dry and rewardingly complex Chardonnays with its flavours of ripe citrus, honeydew, melon and peach. Flinty notes add complexity, which comes from both cool climate high acidity and lees contact from ageing in the barrel. The flavours are elegant and focused with a lingering finish.
