Waipara Pioneers the Donaldson Family, did such an exceptional job taking their 'estate grown' Pegasus Bay Wines to the world, they soon discovered they could have sold their stocks three times over! Constrained by a lack of land, they decided to create a second label, that worked in partnership with a handful of contract growers around the region. Made by the same award-winning team, at home in their Waipara winery where many world-class wines have been made.

Main Divide is a local reference for the Southern Alps which run down through the backbone of the South Island. The label, which was created as a second tier to Pegasus Bay has amassed a cult following of its own over the years. Known for their exceptional value for money and superb quality, they are often right behind their prestigious big brother label in tastings, only at considerably less cost. This gorgeous new release from the exciting 2020 vintage is made from old vines, using traditional Burgundian techniques, aged in a mix of new and old French barriques for eighteen months - a true labour of love!

Teeming with complex spice, floral, red and black fruit aromas. A full style with a luxurious mid-palate chocker full of ripe fruit, spice and savoury oak. The savoury and spice elements continue on through a long and lingering finish with svelte tannins and a beautiful weight. Gorgeous drinking right now, but will evolve through to 2026. A canny pinot buyer's dream, and a great cellaring bargain!

A spectacular vintage, pristine old vine fruit, no expense spared winemaking and a truly skillful team - how can they make Five-Star rated Pinot this good for the unbeatable price of just $21.99. Experience New Zealand's best bang for buck in the Pinot section, and grab yours today while this crazy offer lasts!

The stunning 2nd label, old vine Pinot Noir from Pegasus Bay, Main Divide should sit at the top of any smart Kiwi wine buyer's shopping list. The entire range from Pinot Gris to Chardonnay to the reds always over-delivering with serious wines for the money. This 2020 Pinot Noir is Exhibit A, an awesome Pinot Noir that shows the regional signature, it will be exciting with BBQ spareribs, or a treat up to 2026!


Rounded floral and spice aromas over top of smouldering black & red fruits, with a herbal undercurrent giving complexity and intrigue.


A fulsome, quite luxurious mid-palate laden with ripe fruits, spices, and savoury oak… it has a luscious, long finish with savoury and spice tastes emerging in a svelte body. Drinking beautifully at now but no rush...
