Pegasus Bay is consistently one of this country's top Chardonnays and given a few years in bottle will become spectacular.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"On release it has an appealing lemon hue. The bouquet is sumptuous and compelling, both fruit driven and intriguingly savoury. Aromas of ripe peach, nectarine and green apple are interlaced with toasty notes of roast chestnut, smoky bacon, flint, sandalwood, and a whisp of struck match. The palate is a deluxe showcase of multi-layered richness and precision. Dense and textured, yet fresh and vivid. A gloriously expansive mouthfeel is perfectly balanced by a whip of rousing acidity that shimmies across the midpalate, setting up for an explosive and gratifying finish."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"Poor flowering followed by near-perfect weather resulted in a small crop of intensely flavoured grapes in perfect condition. From ungrafted 30-year-old-plus vines and a very favourable vintage, it’s a smooth-textured chardonnay with white peach, lemon curd, grapefruit and spicy oak flavours. Appealing purity and power. A sophisticated and complex wine."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"Superbly complex and inviting with ripe stone fruit, grapefruit, gun smoke and roasted hazelnut aromas, it's powerful and richly expressed on the palate offering outstanding depth and textured mouthfeel. Great presence with a prolonged gratifying finish. At its best: now to 2030."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Strapping yet delicate, richly flavoured yet subtle, this sophisticated North Canterbury wine is one of the country's best Chardonnays grown south of Marlborough. Muscular and taut, it typically offers a seamless array of fresh, crisp, citrusy, biscuity, complex flavours and great concentration and length. Estate-grown at Waipara, it is based on ungrafted, Mendoza-clone vines (over 30 years old), hand-picked and given lengthy oak aging (the 2019 vintage was fermented and lees-aged for a year in French oak puncheons, 30 per cent new). The 2019 vintage is bright, light yellow/green, with a very fragrant, complex bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is concentrated, with vibrant, peachy, mealy flavours, oak complexity, fresh acidity and the structure to mature well. Full of personality, it should be at its best 2023+."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"There’s no mistaking the power and intensity of this wine, before I even begin to take in the aromas – the scents of oak spice, lees and toasted yellowstone fruit invade the senses. Roasted cashew nut and baking spices, peach and nectarine, roasted apple and grapefruit peel. There’s also a baked custard and hard clay earthy quality. Bold and proud bouquet overall. Full-bodied, oaky and fruity with flavours the mirror the bouquet from stone fruits to citrus, barrel to earth. Youthful with some fruit and wood tannins, a decent acid line and persistent lengthy finish. Best drinking from mid to late 2022 through 2030."

96/100 James Suckling, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Impressive, vibrant and flinty white-peach and grapefruit aromas with an array of fresh, spicy, hazelnut-tinged oak. The palate combines a lot of ripe melon and white peaches with smoky, grilled nuts. Great wine that’s packed with interest."


5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Wow. Wow and triple wow. If the immense punch of grilled grapefruit, buttered crumpet, and hints of smoked bacon and popcorn doesn’t send you sideways, the powerful, weighty, woof-inducing complexity on the palate definitely will. Sourced from old vines and matured on its yeast lees in 30% new French oak puncheons, it’s a beautiful, golden, richly textured wine that has beautifully smoky layers on the finish. Cellaring potential? I’d love to taste this again in five years. Gorgeous stuff."

  • Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

    Best wine shop in Christchurch! Caters to all tastes and budgets. Be prepared to spend a while in this store as the options are endless.

  • I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
