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 Encore Noble Riesling 375ml 2016

    In vintages with ample botrytis, an Encore Riesling is produced. I'd put the 2016 Encore Riesling up against many German beerenauslesen. It's wonderfully sweet and rich (210 grams per litre residual sugar), with pristine apricot and marmalade notes balanced by bright acids. …. but the balance is superb and the finish lasts into next week. Wow!

    Cumquat, cheese, intense syrup, acid cut, lots of carry and richness in the finish. Zing of sweet lime marmalade and spice to close. Excellent.

    The 2016 Encore Noble Riesling has a gorgeous bouquet of pure honey, fig, Golden Delicious apple and orange pith aromas. The taut, focused palate is very well balanced, with a fine line of acidity. The fresh orange zest, marmalade and quince finish lingers in the mouth for 45 seconds. Excellent.

    Fruity, fresh and bold aromas of citrus and orange , mandarin and apple, a light fruit spice layer and quite floral. Sweet-ish on the palate with plenty of high toned acidity; flavours matching the nose plus an easy to spot/taste stony mineral layer. Silky texture, a whisper of ginger and long natural finish.
