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 Merlot Cabernet 2016

    Spice, dusting of pepper, blackberry and plum, quite a bit of spicy cedar oak on top. Medium bodied, tobacco, red and black fruit, grainy tannin pushing through on the finish, a little more plush to close, with raspberry tea perfume trailing. Much personality. Enjoy this a fair bit.

    Dark, moist earth and ripe plums with roasting herbs laced throughout. This has richness and fullness on the palate with plump plums holding very deep, fleshy and long.

    Pegasus Bay Merlot Cabernet 2016

    Darker fruits on the nose, dusty gravel and smoke too: very inviting. Powerful, juicy, dark fruits dance on the palate, filling every corner of the mouth. Sumptuous, fine-grained tannins and beautiful balance adding hints of Dutch licorice, humus, and a savoury/umami element. Amazingly long and delicious finish: you just don’t want to put the glass down.
