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 Riesling 2016

    Distinctive, intensely varietal and ripe with aromas of lemon and apple, jasmine and blossoms, flinty, stony mineral core and a pure overall expression. Fantastic flavour and impact on the palate with honeysuckle and quince, apple and apricot stone, white peach and lemon peel. Noticeable acidity, light weight, pure and fresh, a citrus peel, spice and floral lift on the finish. Balanced and well made.

    Pegasus Bay Riesling 2016

    Medium riesling with plenty of apricot, honey, struck flint, anise, spice and cinnamon flavours. A touch of sweetness is perfectly balanced by fruity acidity to give the wine some pleasing tension.

    Pegasus Bay Riesling 2016

    From vines over 30 years old, this wine shows lovely poise and richness. Made in a distinctly medium style, it has crisp but not high acidity, with a powerful surge of fresh, peachy, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours. A very harmonious wine, it’s delicious now, but also worth cellaring.
