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 2019
    Peaches and limes, green apples and white blossoms, honey suckle and green mandarin. Vibrant, fresh, youthful and pure. As the wine touches the palate the acidity begins to dance and tingle while the core of fruit flavours mirror the nose. No mistaking the acidity with a whisper of contrasting residual sweetness then a return to flavours of mandarin and lime flower, apple and peach. Delicious, fleshy and long.

    Immensely complex and enticing, the bouquet shows mango, orange peel, honey, potpourri and warm spice aromas, leading to a gorgeously flavoursome palate that's filled with succulent fruit flavours and spicy nuances. It's generous and opulent yet refined and structured with a persistent delicious finish.

    Mat Donaldson and this team make this medium-dry Riesling one of the country’s most opulent white wines every year. Flavours span the succulent gamut of wild honey, lemongrass, lemon zest and ripe mandarins, all leading into a full-bodied, weighty drop. It’s modelled on the best Rieslings from Germany and Austria and produced from grapes given a long hang time on the vines, which provides density in body and taste. Pegasus Bay Riesling is one of New Zealand’s greatest white wines every year. It’s a maverick, brave, adventurous white that is delicious now and ages for a decade and then some.

    Volume on the nose immediately apparent. Flits from a little funk to apple, grapefruit and musk, nice complexity. Richness, filling the mouth, apple, musky botrytis, spices, off dry with super acid balance. Excellent focus to this, super texturally with winning complexity. Great length and a lovely lip-smacking close. I want to go back for more of this. Rating: Excellent to Outstanding

    Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, lighter on the rim. The nose has concentration and poise, nuances of mandarin, green apple, lime zest entwined with lime flowers. Mediumfull bodied, medium-dry to taste, a concentrated core of green apple, mandarin and zest, apricots melded with honey, lime flower enriched by pollen and a hint of ginger. The palate is vibrant and refreshing; invigorating acidity flows with light honey syrup, rounded the palate. Purity of fruit layered with charming spice and floral elements. This is a medium-dry Riesling with pure fruit, multilayered richness and precision.
