Pegasus Bay Prima Donna Aged Release Pinot Noir (2011)

A decade old when it was rereleased in 2021, the 2011 vintage (5*) was grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury. Hand-harvested from the estate's oldest vines, it was matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Deep, mature ruby, it is highly fragrant, with hints of coffee and liquorice. Powerful, sweet-fruited and savoury, it has concentrated, ripe flavours, showing lovely richness, complexity and roundness.
