Pegasus Bay Riesling is arguably the wine that put Waipara on the map. It's a classic and always delivers. Perfect at anytime of the day – it just makes you feel good.

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"On release it has a beguiling lemon hue. Erupting from the glass is a crescendo of citrus, tropical and perfume, anchored by a steely mineral footing. Impressions of grapefruit, lychee, green apple, and lime sherbet are overlaid with subtle hints of rose petal and geranium, and an intriguing whisp of flint. The mouthfeel is crisp and energised, its juicy fresh fruit favours supported by a fine thread of acid that balances the wines off-dry finish perfectly. Structured yet elegant, it closes with a long, salivating finish, tempting the receiver back for more."

Reviews for previous vintages below…

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"Classy stuff. Estate-grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury, in top vintages it is richly fragrant and thrillingly intense, with flavours of citrus fruits and honey, complex and luscious. Based on mature vines and stop-fermented in a distinctly medium style, it breaks into full stride at about three years old and can mature well for over a decade. The distinctive 2020 vintage is already delicious. Bright yellow/green, it is weighty and rich, with deep, peachy, slightly honeyed and gingery flavours, gentle sweetness (26 grams/litre of residual sugar), and a very harmonious finish. Drink now or cellar."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows pineapple, grilled peach, orange peel, ginger and subtle honey characters, leading to a delectably expressed palate that's filled with succulent fruit flavours and rich texture. Opulent yet harmonious with attractive sweetness and bright acidity, finishing long and luscious. Style: Medium. At its best: now to 2032."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2022 (2020 Vintage)​
"Fantastic bouquet, pure, ripe, zesty and fresh. Aromas and flavours peaches and lemon zest, there’s a honeysuckle and marmalade quality with fresh red apples and a lifted white flower quality. Off dry as the wine touches the palate with an immediately contrasting acid line and core fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet. Delicious, fresh and just dry on the finish. Best drinking from late 2023 through 2030."

Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 94/100, NZ Wine Rater, May 2023 (2020 Vintage)
"Complex, layered aromatics, including kafir lime, granny smith, citrus leaves, sea salt, and tonic water, with a touch of corruption. A taut, salivating, and intense palate with concentrated lime fruit, a crystalline texture, and bracing zippy acid. A touch of sweetness on the finish provides the perfect balance."

93/100 James Suckling, October 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Aromas of ground ginger, lemon curd, crushed thyme and sliced peaches. Medium-bodied and off dry. Articulate and rounded with the sweetness adding definition and depth. Grated nutmeg. Candied lemon and orange peel. Delicious."

  • The Pegasus Bay vineyard enjoys the natural advantages provided by its Waipara Valley location: high sunshine hours, hot dry norwesters, closeness to the Pacific Ocean combined with good shelter from its Easterlies, a bed of ancient gravel and smooth stones enhancing drainage and overall heat retention - all conspiring to provide an ideal, prolonged grape ripening season.

  • Pegasus Bay has spaces for private events, including landscaped gardens, wetlands and lakes and two levels of well-appointed restaurant area.

  • Bob Campbell MW, of Australian Gourmet Traveller says "Pegasus Bay gets my vote for Waipara’s top winery for a number of reasons: its wines are often exceptionally good and are always made in adventurous, out of the main stream styles"

  • NZ Wine Country says "if a wine critic was not passionate about any of Pegasus Bay’s wine they should seriously consider a change in career".
