Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley North Canterbury Riesling


Classy stuff. Estate-grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury, in top vintages it is richly fragrant and thrillingly intense, with flavours of citrus fruits and honey, complex and luscious. Based on mature vines and stop-fermented in a distinctly medium style, it breaks into full stride at about three years old and can mature well for over a decade. The 2017 vintage (5*) is bright, light yellow/green, with a gently honeyed bouquet. Concentrated, with gentle sweetness (21 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has lush stone-fruit flavours, a hint of honey, and good acid spine. Best drinking 2021+.
