PEGASUS BAY RIESLING AGED RELEASED 2007 is available to buy in increments of 1
Starting with this Riesling, Pegasus Bay have decided to hold back a small quantity of wine for an aged release 10 years on. This 10 year old Riesling is developing nicely. The sweetness has dried out a little and the flavours are becoming like toast and marmalade.
Winery notes (2007 Vintage)
"The aromas and flavours invoke impressions of ripe stone fruits, such as nectarines and peaches, supported by hints of tropical spices, passionfruit and lycees. There is a backbone of tangy lime- and lemon-like citrus fruits which add a zesty “nervosity”. It has a spine of minerality and crisp acidity which keep it tight-knit and focussed, drying out its lingering after-taste."
95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2017 (2007 Vintage)
"Gently golden and deep straw hues; the bouquet remain youthful with lemon and apple fruit aromas; there’s also a preserved lemon, dried pineapple, camomile and toasted honey notes from bottle age – overall quite complex. On the palate – off-dry, luscious and Delicious! Wow – amazing texture, concentration and flavours; bright and still highly energised acidity; off-dry with some residual sweetness and a lengthy honeyed citrus and floral finish. Drinking beautifully now and through 2028."
5 Stars & 19.0+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2017 (2007 Vintage)
Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler edged. The bouquet is very tightly bound with concentrated aromas of limes, exotic yellow florals, toast and nuances of honey and a subtle layering of kerosene adding to the complexity. This is still taut and has more to unfold and develop. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a crisp and taut, finely concentrated core and line of lime fruit entwined with exotic yellow florals, toast and kerosene elements. The flavours unfold in layers, showing secondary complexities, blossoming to fill the mouth. The palate is vibrant and lively with refreshing acidity, providing drive and linearity, the flavours carrying to a long and sustained finish of exotic florals and citrus fruits, and toast, with a touch of grip. This is a taut, concentrated medium-dry Riesling with complex secondary flavours of exotic florals, toast, citrus fruits and a touch of kerosene on a bright palate finishing dry. A wine to serve as an aperitif, or just enjoy marvelling at the complex development over the next 3-4 years. Waipara estate fruit cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 29 g/L RS and TA 7.3 g/L."
