BOBCAMPBELL.NZ Bob Campbell MW, May 2019 94 Points

Dense, seamless and flavoursome pinot noir with ripe plum, cherry and violet with a strong seasoning of spicy oak. Distinctive wine which is an expression of variety, place and winemaking. A youthful wine with potential.

ROBERTPARKER.COM Joe Czerwinski, March 2018 92 Points Made with 40% whole clusters, the 2016 Pinot Noir looks to be the finest regular Peg Bay Pinot in some time. Its spicy, stemmy, sappy notes are balanced by bright, fresh black cherry fruit. It’s medium- bodied, with a silky feel and a lingering finish that echoes with attractive tea-like nuances.

JAMESSUCKLING.COM Nick Stock, October 2018 94 Points Wild herbs and bracken with red fruit and darker, more earthy notes. Rose hips, black tea and plums. The palate has a dense, succulent and seamlessly polished, tightly wrapped feel. Long and taut. Needs time

The Donaldson family are big are a influence in wine in New Zealand and wine in the Caterbury region. The first vineyards planted in 1976 and Pegasus Bay established in 1986. 

The wine has a vibrant ruby appearance. The bouquet is packed with red and dark fruit, (raspberry, pomegranate and cherry), with hints of pepper and spice. Layered beneath there are also savoury notes that speak of grilled game and black olive tapenade. The palate is satisfyingly concentrated with fine grained tannins, however there is a refreshing minerality which ensures the wine remains tight and focused, with a lasting finish. A slightly reduced time in oak has resulted in a harmonious style, one that that is mouth-filling yet elegant
