This special, one-off limited edition has been offered exclusively to Fine Wine Delivery customers.
The Donaldson Family name is a well known one in Wine circles. Pioneers of the Waipara Region in North Canterbury, they have been growing and making wine there since the 1970’s.
The quality of Pegasus Bay Wines is world renowned. Critics from far and wide all know and love this brand, extolling its virtues as one of NZ’s most exciting producers. They have even been awarded Robert Parker’s Highest Producer Rating of ‘Outstanding’.
And the Donaldsons have been wonderful ambassadors for the now 90 odd vineyards that make up the North Canterbury Region. However, there is something unique that sets them apart from the pack in our opinion.
Being the first planted they have vine age, and most of their vines are the originals planted with almost 30 years of hard working experience among them. Vine age brings texture and depth that young vines can only dream of having one day.
Also with age comes wisdom. 2017 was a challenging vintage for the Canterbury Region but Pegasus Bay had seen conditions like this before, and knew what was required to make great wine from less than ideal conditions. In fact they managed to make something quite special indeed...
They grow Malbec specifically for their flagship Bordeaux Blend Maestro. And 2017 resulted in a parcel so good, it demanded a special Single Vineyard wine be produced from it. With 18-months of French Barrique maturation the results were a stunningly complex, rich wine brimming with black fruit, berries and a hint of cocoa. Its fine ripe tannin and beautifully integrated oak adding toasty vanilla complexities.
It is stunning drinking now, but will continue to develop over the next 5-7 years. This wine is only available at Fine Wine Delivery- Overseas markets will never even know about this treasure. So don't delay, and grab yours today!
