    Five Stars | Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification

    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 Pinot Noir 2019

    Made with 40% whole-bunches. Spent 18 months in French oak barriques (40% new). Complex pinot noir that is a little closed at this stage, although it opened up as it sat in the glass. Dark berry, cassis, violet, mixed spice, new leather and spicy oak flavours supported by firm, ripe tannins.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2019
    Ripe, concentrated, varietal and complex bouquet with aromas of boysenberry, plum and dark cherry. Aromas of new and seasoned barrel with toasty, nut and dark spices combination layering in complexity, shape and form. Youthful, vibrant and promising. On the palate - delicious! with a mirror of the bouquet showcasing fruit then mineral stony layers, firm textures from tannins then acidity. Wood spices with fine through firm tannins building power and length.

    Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir 2019

    Bright, ruby-red, slightly lighter edged. The nose is elegantly full, complex range of aromas filled the glass, thyme, lavender melded with black cherries, blackberries, followed by a lifting of black pepper and subtle earthiness. Medium-full bodied, elegantly presented aromas of blackberries, black cherries, almost plummy fruit interweave black pepper, lavender and thyme. The palate is rounded and smooth; silkyfine tannin provides a light grip and emphasises the spices. Fragrant aromas of lavender and thyme are attractive, complementing the black fruit beautifully. This is a charmingly fragranced Pinot Noir with flavours of floral, black fruit and earth with concentration and finesse.
