Pegasus Bay Finale Noble Semillon 2011

A warm golden hue reflects the ripeness of the semillon and the clean noble botrytis.
" . . . deep gold, very sturdy, Sauternes-style wine. Lush and very sweet, with notably concentrated, peachy, honeyed flavours, and hints of apricots and raisins, . . . . hard to resist." - 5 Stars, Michael Cooper, Buyers Guide, NZ The Donaldson family have been seriously involved in wine since the early 1970’s and were pioneers of local grape growing and wine making. Their aim is to grow grapes of the highest quality, which fully express the features of the vineyard, and to handle these with the utmost respect. Minimal intervention at all stages from vine to bottle typifies their approach. They believe in traditional sustainable viticultural management, low crop levels, minimal handling of fruit during processing and gentle pressing. Pegasus Bay vineyard is situated within the Waipara Valley, guaranteeing maximum protection from the Pacific's easterly breezes by being tucked up under the lee of the Teviotdale Range.

Tasting Notes

A warm golden hue reflects the ripeness of the semillon and the clean noble botrytis. The generous bouquet and flavour suggest peaches, apricots, comb honey, nougat, marzipan and toasted almonds. It is mouth filling and rich but at the same time has elegance and poise. There is a sinuous spine of acidity and minerality that draws out the length and provides a perfect balance to the wine’s natural lusciousness.
