Pegasus Bay Estate Riesling 2009 Aged ReleaseRegular price £32.00
Produced from low yields of optimally ripened, high quality, flavourful grapes:
fully expressive of the free draining, low-fertility, glacially formed soils.
Extended “hang time” and picking the grapes where possible with a small
proportion of noble botrytis results in a bouquet packed full of citrus,
particularly orange zest that so defines North Canterbury Rieslings. Hints of
stone-fruit, lychees, pineapple and tropical spices makes for a satisfyingly
concentrated wine, which is off-set by a core of minerality and tangy acidity.
