Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Its colour is deep ruby, with tantalising dark fruit aromas of blackberry, cherry and plum. Intertwined with this are hints of chocolate, liquorice and vanilla, along with savoury notes of wood smoke and spice. The mouthfeel is silky and succulent, with ripe tannins that provide balance and structure. A long hot summer has delivered a beautifully crafted, harmonious wine, displaying both power and finesse."


91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"It's beautifully fruited and delightfully expressed on the nose, showing dark plum, blackberry, thyme, toasted hazelnut and subtle game characters. The palate is plump and gorgeously flavoursome with excellent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, making it comforting and very tasty."


Mark Henderson, Wine Times, June 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Toffee, smoke, yeast extract, crushed leaf and charry elements, becoming more fragrant with time in the glass. A rush of sweet fruit evolves to savoury nuances, adding chocolate, leaf, lead pencil and spice notes, growing and building in the glass with aeration. A little tangy bite on the close. A reliable choice."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


95/100 NWWA (2017 Vintage)
"Produced by the very gifted team at Pegasus Bay from North Canterbury and under the direction of Matt Donaldson. In this classic blend the Merlot provides ripe fruit and drinkability, while the Cabernet Sauvignon gives body, backbone and structure. The result is a rich wine with ripe flavours of sweet red berries, plums and blueberry, full flavoured with a long soft finish. Pair this with lamb shoulder chops, slow cooked with thyme and onions."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Offering good value, the 2017 vintage from Pegasus Bay was grown at Waipara and matured for over a year in French oak barriques. Fragrant and full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with strong, vibrant plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, showing excellent ripeness and depth, oak complexity, and a very harmonious finish. Drink now or cellar."


89/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Lots dark red fruit aromas with plums and blackberry, black cherry and violets. Some darker toasty wood spices suggesting vanilla and five spice. Juicy, fleshy, fruity and dry on the palate. Fine tannins with some tension and firmness, medium+ acidity and toasty wood spices. Flavours of wood and dark red berry fruits lead the into a nice lengthy finish. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2024."


17.5/20 & Bargain Buy, Joelle Thomson, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Main Divide wines are named after the Southern Alps (Kā Tiritiri o te Moana), which divide the east coast from the west in the South Island of New Zealand. It’s a fitting name for a great range of wines from Pegasus Bay in North Canterbury. This blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% each of Malbec and Cabernet Franc was fermented in stainless steel with regular draining and spraying back over the cap of the skins to gently extract tannins. It was aged in French oak for 18 months, just 10% new oak, ensuring minimum wood flavour and maximum softening effects."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
