Winery Notes (2016 Vintage)
"Here at Pegasus Bay we’ve been experimenting with Semillon for years, so it felt appropriate to use this variety as the core of our first Vergence white. Ultra-ripe Semillon from our 33 year old vines was fermented naturally with its solids to add some funky complexity, and then aged on lees in old oak barrels for 2 ½ years. A touch of Chardonnay, Muscat and Gewurztraminer were also included in the final blend to add aromatics and balance.

The longer than usual period in oak has given this wine a toasty and nutty character, with extra richness on the palate. There are also hints of citrus blossom and some floral notes. Skin contact during the fermentation has added savouriness, however the wine still has crisp acidity that provides for a lively and refreshing finish. A full bodied and complex wine, not for the faint hearted. Funkier than a night on the town with James Brown!"


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Highly distinctive, this weighty, fleshy, dry white is based on Waipara semillon, barrel-aged for two and a half years, and blended with lesser amounts of chardonnay, muscat and gewürztraminer. Pale straw, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it has concentrated, ripe, stonefruit flavours, hints of herbs, spices and nuts, and a lasting finish."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Made using semillon from their 33-year old vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts then aged on lees in oak barrels for 2.5 years, with a touch of chardonnay, muscat and gewurztraminer. The bouquet is impressively complex and fragrant, showing grapefruit, baked apple, golden peach, beeswax and toasted nut characters with a whiff of gun smoke. It is concentrated and wonderfully weighted on the palate, delivering rich texture, expansive mouthfeel and bright acidity, finishing long and attractively savoury."
