The Donaldson family are massive influencers on the wine industry in the Canterbury region and the rest of NZ. The first vineyards planted in 1976 and Pegasus Bay established in 1986. 

Upon release the wine is bright ruby in colour, the bouquet a rich tapestry of both red and dark fruit, as well as savoury notes. Heady aromas of cherries, plums and pomegranate swell from the glass, flanked by a smouldering column of cinnamon, mushroom, truffle and leather. The mouthfeel is generous yet supple, with a pelt of velvety ripe tannins that adds structure and length. Well-judged acidity completes the perfect partnership, giving balance and setting up for a long and harmonious finish.
