Press Review

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2015

    Super vibrant with plenty of earthy forest floor aromas as well as toasted spices. The palate reveals a core of pristine dark cherry fruit flavor, beautifully judged ripe tannins and a level of effortless depth that singles this out as a consistently great New Zealand pinot noir.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2015

    Intense, youthful pinot noir with floral, violet, plum, cherry, cocoa powder, spice and anise flavours. Dense yet elegant wine with power and a lingering finish. The wine really opened up in the glass and deserves to be aerated before serving. Good cellaring potential.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2015

    Dark ruby-red colour with a deep heart, a little lighter on the edge with slight purple hues. The bouquet is full and redolent of fragrant dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined savoury notes of black plums and lifted dark herbs, unfolding dark-red floral elements. The aromatics form a deep heart with plenty of aromatic presence. Medium-full bodied, the palate has an elegant and harmoniously interwoven, rich and sweet-fruited heart with flavours of dark-red berry fruit with subtle notes of savoury plums, dark herbs and fragrant florals. The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant and the succulent fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction with balanced acidity. The fruit vitality carries the wine to a long and sustained, sweet finish. This is a beautifully elegant and harmonious, vibrant and bright-fruited Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits, herbs and florals on a fresh, fine-grained palate.

    A bouquet filled with raw energy, Pinosity and an abundance of individuality. Aromas and flavours of light red fruits, mushroom and soft dried herb. The signature of clay, gravel and limestone is central to the flavour alongside the fruit. No mistaking the use of oak and its meaningful measure. Long finish. Very Pegasus Bay.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2015

    Mixed red fruit on the nose and a silky, medium to full-bodied palate give the 2015 Pinot Noir current appeal, but patient drinkers will be rewarded. It's richer and more complete than the 2014 yet retains a firmly tannic finish that suggests another year or two in the cellar would be of benefit.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2015

    Boldly aromatic, sitting very firmly in the darker fruited spectrum; blackberry, currant and plum with some star anise and liquorice too. There is new oak giving structure and backbone and the tannins are still quite marked. The finish is long and generous. Plenty of potential here just needs longer in bottle to harmonise properly.
