This is a unique New Zealand expression of a traditional white Bordeaux blend made from approximately 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon.  The grapes come from a single vineyard located within the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury and both varieties were picked in stages, timing each harvest to optimise the grapes’ range of natural flavours. This distinctive North Canterbury white has loads of personality. From vines over 30 years old, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with tropical-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak and a tightly structured, lasting finish. It can be enjoyed now or it can be cellared for several years to come.

Pegasus Bay is a family-owned and run business within the Waipara Valley, led by patriarch and Neuroscientist Ivan Donaldson. Free draining and low fertility soils produce low yields of high quality, flavourful grapes, which fully express the qualities of Pegasus Bay’s unique setting. Their portfolio of wines is led by a diverse range of age-worthy styles.
