Description

Founder Ivan Donaldson planted the first Canterbury vineyard in 1976 and went on to establish Pegasus Bay in 1986 with his wife Christine. The vineyards are over 30 years old with a large proportion planted on their own roots. 2017 was a challenging vintage in North Canterbury but those hardy souls have still managed to produce some great wines, this Malbec being a prime example. The Pegasus Bay team were so impressed with the Malbec crop, that instead of blending into their flagship Bordeaux Blend, the Maestro, they turned it into a new single vineyard wine. Aged in French barriques 18 months it is a stunningly complex, deep and rich wine.

Smells

The density of the wine is apparent in the dark brooding aromas. Plums, boysenberries, mocha and a stunning violet, floral note.

Tastes

Mouth-filling, rich and intense with black fruits, crunchy berries and a hint of cocoa. It has impressive density in the core, with a vibrant blueberry edge to the creamy, silken palate. Fine, ripe tannins, beautifully integrated oak adding a toasty, vanilla complexity. It will develop superbly over the next 5-7 years.
