Overview

Tasting Note:
Grown on stony soils in the Waipara Valley, the 2009 Bel Canto Riesling exudes ripe citrus expressions intertwined with those of nectarines, peaches and greengages. It seems to expand in the mouth to become rich, concentrated and unctuous, yet retains the poise, elegance and finesse that is typical of this most aristocratic of grape varieties. There is a flow of acidity, derived from the vineyard soils, which course through the wine and draws out its length.

Situated in the Waipara Valley, just north of Christchurch in the South Island, Pegasus Bay is owned by the Donaldson family who have been seriously involved in the NZ wine industry since the early 1970’s and were pioneers of local grape growing and wine making. The vineyards have been established in an ideal climate for grape growing, protected from the cooling winds of the Pacific by a range of hills to the east and buffeted by the warm nor'west winds which derive from the Southern Alps - The Main Divide. The Pegasus Bay wines are very well-regarded both in New Zealand and by wine enthusiasts around the world, famed American critic rates it as one of New Zealand's top 5 producers and acclaimed wine writer Michael Cooper heralds the estate as Canterbury's top winery.
