Ideally drink now or cellar for up to 5 years. Serve well chilled.

Rich golden in colour, this Chardonnay displays a nose that has citrus, melon, pineapple and yellow fruit. There are also hints of liquorice, smoke and even roasted meat. On the palate, the powerful, complex wine explodes with ripe fruit, great acidity and a creaminess that gives a full mouth richness that coats your mouth with an unctuous, full bodied feel. The finish is long, lingering, complex and absolutely delicious! Hints of minerality linger long after the last taste.

Fantastic on it’s own but also great with chicken, pasta, fish and seafood.

Pegasus Bay Winery prides itself on producing the highest quality fruit with minimal intervention that expresses the terroir and results in stunning wines. Sustainable vineyard management techniques are used including low crop levels and minimal handling of fruit throughout the process. Gentle pressings, malolactic fermentation from indigenous yeast and clarifying the wine by settling all go into to producing top quality, very interesting wines.

This Chardonnay is made in traditional Burgundy style. Fruit is hand harvested at optimal ripeness. After gentle pressing the juice is placed in large oak barrels where fermentation takes place. Following fermentation, a secondary malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is matured for 12 months, followed by a further 6 months in stainless steel.
