The 2017 Prima Donna will continue the successful lineage of this outstanding Pinot Noir from Pegasus Bay. Sourced from 30+ year old vines. Like the others in the reserve range, this is only made in the top years to produce a wine that they describe as being 'elegant and haunting, yet powerful'. 


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Upon release the colour is deep ruby. The bouquet is a seductive patchwork of red and dark fruit, with hints of violet, liquorice and a dried herb compexity. But there is more, autumn undergrowth giving way to sweet spice and smokey mineral notes. Fine grained silky tannins and bright acidity dance harmoniously on the palate, balanced by a dense core of ripe fruit. Elegant and haunting, yet powerful, with classic structure and a prolonged satisfying finish. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"Complex and detailed bouquet with layers of ripe red berry fruits and spiced Doris plum, baking spice and toasty wood combinations, there’s also a fine savoury dried herb scent adding enticement and intrigue. As the wine opens up in glass a sense of earth, place and mineral begin to emerge. Tense and dry on the palate with a core of fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet. No mistaking the firm tannins and acid line forming foundation for the fruit and ageing with contrasting flavours of berries and plum then spices of wood. There’s plenty of development time ahead for this wine, it delicious now, but will continue to age and develop if cellared correctly. Best drinking likely from 2023 through 2030+."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"For its top Waipara red, Pegasus Bay wants ‘a heavenly voice, a shapely body and a velvety nose’. Based on the oldest vines, it is matured for 15 to 20 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). The 2017 vintage is deeply coloured, with a highly fragrant, very savoury bouquet. A powerful, weighty red, it is notaby concentrated, with deep, vibrant plum and spice flavours, rich and complex, and finely balanced tannins. Still very youthful, it should be long-lived; open 2023+."


Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 93/100 NZ Wine Rater, September 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"This is a very intense, complex, powerful wine with lashings of everything, and undeniable consumer appeal but there is caveat. While it's heady and potent on the nose with aromas of roast Portobello mushroom, smoky bacon, and roast chestnut characters there's also a strong signature of brettanomyces with it's distinctive horse, leather notes that may be divisive to some. Never the less it's boldly structured with a rich, exuberant palate, ripe, dark berry flavours and a long finish."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


5 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2020 (2016 Vintage)
"The flagship pinot in a typically rich and generous style made using 30% whole-bunches during fermentation. It’s a dense, silken-textured wine, with mellow savouriness and flavours suggesting ripe plum, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, spice and anise. A complex and appealing red."


5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2020 (2016 Vintage)
"Immensely complex and gratifying, the wine shows perfumed aromas of dark cherry, warm spice and earthy mushroom on the nose with nuances of game, vanilla and cedar. It’s impressively concentrated and persistent on the palate, displaying sumptuous mouthfeel and plush texture, while remaining classically structured and refined. At its best: now to 2030."

  • 5 star review  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. The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10

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

  • 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.
