Brand new release of this highly sort after Waipara Chardonnay. 2015 was an growing ideal season, but crops were very low, resulting in only limited availability. With this 2015, we think Pegasus Bay have raised the bar on what Waipara Chardonnay can achieve. Get in quick to save any disappointment of missing out!


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"2015 was an ideal grape growing season with a warm summer and a long lingering dry autumn. Low crop levels have given this wine extra concentration. On release the wine light lemon/straw colour. The aromas and flavours suggest citrus fruits, apricot, yellow fleshed peach and mango with complexing savoury overtones of oatmeal, toast, grilled mushrooms and vanilla pod. It is powerful and creamy on the palate but an underlying spine of natural minerality and acidity keep it tight and focused and help draw out the lingering after flavours."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light golden-green hued straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is full and elegantly deep, possessing a complex amalgam of white and yellow stonefruit entwined with very fine nutty and toasty oak and subtle mineral detail and complexing suggestions of flinty and oxidative elements. The aromatics are detailed and very harmoniously integrated. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with an intense heart with flavours of white and yellow stonefruits interwoven with nutty oak and creamy barrel-ferment elements, unfolding mineral and oxidative detail. The mouthfeel has fine textures guiding the fruit, and the acidity is refined and refreshingly crisp. The wine carries to a long, lingering finish of stonefruits and nuts. This is an intense and complex flavoured Chardonnay with stonefruits and nutty, oxidative flavours on a fine-textured, refreshing palate. Serve with roasted and grilled seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the original ungrafted vines, 30 y.o., hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented in 30% new puncheons to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months on lees with 50% MLF."
