Bel Canto is part of Pegasus Bay’s reserve series, it is only made in exceptional years that are favourable for the development of noble botrytis. An enticing array of aromas swell from the glass, orange zest, quince, and melon, supported by beeswax, blossom, sweet spices and a touch of flint. The palate is full bodied and richly textured, with a pleasing mouthfeel and ripe phenolics that add structure and length. While concentrated, the wine still possesses a fresh and lively tension, it’s refreshing acidity delivering a long harmonious finish.

    Description

    The Donaldson family has been involved in wine since the early 1970’s and are pioneers of winemaking in Waipara. Pegasus Bay remains an entirely family-owned and operated enterprise in the Waipara Valley, where the vineyard gets maximum protection from the Pacific’s easterly breezes. Planted in 1985 the Pegasus Bay vineyard is largely un-grafted producing ultra-low yields of grapes per vine with loose bunches and small berries.

      A bouquet of honeysuckle, acacia & orange blossom.
      Flavours of nectarine, apricot, mandarin, and lime.
      Really delicious.
