Pegasus Bay Riesling 2016 White Wine 75cl


Pegasus Bay Riesling 2016 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.

The house style of giving the grapes a longer ''hang time'' helps express the regions unique varietal features and 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.


Pairs well with…

  • White Meat
Grape: Riesling
"Ripe lime and lemon fruits with some candied glacé citrus are cast across flinty and stony aromas." Awarded 93 Points - James Suckling
Citrus fruits on the nose, especially Orange zest which is typical of North Cantebury Rieslings as well as apple, apricot and sweeter notes of guava and honeysuckle. Beautiful structure and length whilst still retaining a crisp and fresh acidity with an off-dry finish.
The off-dry finish of this wine pairs perfectly with some spicy Asian foods as well as light seafood and chicken dishes.
