Pegasus Bay Prima Donna Pinot Noir


For its top Waipara red, Pegasus Bay wants ‘a heavenly voice, a shapely body and a velvety nose’. Based on the oldest vines, it is matured for 15 to 20 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). The deeply coloured 2016 vintage (5*) is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, concentrated, savoury and supple, that build to a powerful finish. It needs time; open 2022+. The 2017 vintage (5*) is deeply coloured, with a highly fragrant, very savoury bouquet. A powerful, weighty red, it is notaby concentrated, with deep, vibrant plum and spice flavours, rich and complex, and finely balanced tannins. Still very youthful, it should be long-lived; open 2023+.
