Description

Pegasus Bay are renowned for pushing boundaries and Vergence Mark 1, the latest addition to their portfolio is all about this concept. Their aim with this label is first and foremost to make delicious drinking wines, while also reflecting their commitment to constantly evolving their wine styles. The use of whole bunches is common with Pinot Noir, this 2018 wine is unusual for being made from 100% whole bunches. The bunch stems give spice, pepper, and tamarillo notes, adding vibrancy and complexity. And true to their word, this wine is very delicious and very, very drinkable.

Smells

a pure potpourri of aromas, red cherries, strawberries, tamarillo, cinnamon, cardamom, fennel and complexing notes of forest floor and milk chocolate.

Tastes

some 100% whole bunch Pinot Noir can be a little rustic with drying tannins, not so here. True to word the wine has poise, charm and is simply delicious. Generous, complex fruit flavours, wild raspberries, wild thyme, and undergrowth notes entice the taste buds with charming tannins that coat the cheeks giving warmth and structure, and the length goes on forever. This sets the benchmark for this style of winemaking. Drinking superbly now through 2030 and the ideal partner to mushroomy dishes and gamey meats.
