PEGASUS BAY WAIPARA VALLEY PINOT NOIR
The Donaldson Family have been seriously involved in viticulture and winemaking for over 40 years. Founder Ivan Donaldson planted the first Canterbury vineyard in 1976 and went on to establish Pegasus Bay in 1986 with his wife Christine. It is a true family business with all four of their sons and two spouses involved, managing various aspects.
The wine has a vibrant ruby appearance. On the nose, there is a selection of red fruit aromas (raspberry, pomegranate and cherry), as well as pepper and clove. Underpinning this are savoury notes reminiscent of the grilled game and black olive tapenade. The palate is satisfyingly concentrated with fine-grained tannins, however, there is a refreshing minerality that ensures the wine remains tight and focused, with a lasting finish.
