Delivery Details

Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2017 comes from the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury New Zealand and is produced by The Donaldson Family. The unique position of their vineyards on north-facing terraces of New Zealand's Southern Alps produces a low yield of optimally ripened, high quality grapes, the warm days and cool nights draw out the ripening period while retaining good natural acidity.

After an extended ''hang time'' the grapes were picked with a portion of noble botrytis which helps express the regions unique varietal features. The free run juice is fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain vibrant fruit character. At all stages, the wine is handled very carefully to keep a little of the natural carbon dioxide resulting in a small amount of spritzing adding extra liveliness to the wine.

An abundance of citrus on the nose, particularly orange zest, a trademark for North Cantebury Rieslings. There are also aromas of apricot, ginger and spice. The influence of the botrytis results in a rich full-bodied wine, yet it still retains a refreshing acidity and dry finish.
Pairs beautifully with any raw, cured or smoked fish as well as fresh shellfish or pork dishes.
