PEGASUS BAY PINOT NOIR 2017 750ML

$49.99

The wine has a vibrant carmine hue. Its aromas and flavours are a complex interplay of fruity and savoury elements, suggesting cherries, raspberries and blackberries, intermingled with roast game, grilled mushrooms, black olives, liquorice and coffee. There is a dense core of fruit in the mouth that is supported by a backbone of firm, ripe tannins which flow evenly through the palate and should help the wine age gracefully.

Description

This is one of the reasons we love Waipara wines – so underappreciated.

Made from a blend of close to a dozen different Pinot Noir clones, different blocks progressively picked during April as they ripened.  Initially cooled to extract softer tannins, fermented and matured for 18 months in fine French Oak with 30% new barrels.

Bright ruby colour, with a complex nose of red cherry, strawberry and black olive tapanade.  Powerful on the palate with black cherry, grilled mushroom and chocolate with a long and spicy but smooth finish.
