Perfectly Aged Prima Donna
$130.00 $115.00 elsewhere $130.00
Pegasus Bay wines are made to age and their wines tend to be released later than most wineries, holding them back until they feel they are beginning to be ready to drink. However these are wines that will improve further with cellaring and so each year a small limited cellar release is made of wines that are 10 years old – ready to enjoy and savour.
Prima Donna is made in only special years and 2009 was definitely one of these. After maturing for 18 months we select the barriques which best reflect our vineyard and the season. Typically these come from our oldest vines. The wine is then carefully blended according to taste to produce Prima Donna.
It has a vibrant crimson hue, turning brown towards the edges. The unfolding aroma is multi-layered and complex, suggesting bright red fruits, blackberries, raspberries, black cherries and purple plums. There are also savoury nuances reminiscent of roast meats and grilled mushrooms, intermingled with whiffs of wood-smoke, showing evidence of bottle age. The palate entry is seductively light, but the wine seems to expand in the mouth to become rich and muscular, while retaining an even ﬂow of velvety tannins. These at the same time excite but soothe the taste buds and draw out the wine’s long lingering finish."
