PEGASUS BAY PRIMA DONNA PINOT NOIR 2017
Prima Donna is the top Pinot Noir and best red from Pegasus Bay Winery, made from a blend of barrels tasted by the winemaking team and chosen for their quality and superior style. It is produced by Mat Donaldson and his winemaking team, who aim to create the most complex and balanced Pinot Noir possible in this wine, which is part of Pegasus Bay’s reserve series wines.
Traditional Burgundian winemaking sees the inclusion of approximately one third of the grapes in this blend fermented as whole bunches. The maturation is in French oak, approximately 45% new, for 18 months, using oak barriques from selected artisan Burgundian coopers.
This wine drinks well now and can also age superbly for 10 years and further, in cool cellar conditions.
* Prima Donna Pinot Noir is produced only in vintages regarded as exceptional quality.
