Description

An amazing but unusual style of Riesling, Pegasus Bay Bel Canto takes the botrytis usually associated with sweeter styles and brings its flavours to a drier style of Riesling. Highly complex and filled with a vibrant energy, 2017 is an exceptional wine, one of the best we've tried.
Smells
So much citrus zest, orange and mandarin with ginger and apricot adding further excitement.
Tastes
The citrus zest is almost becoming candied peel due to that botrytis influence. Lemon and lime juice around the edges. The phenolics are hard at work, giving great texture before its all swished away by tight acidity. Drink young or cellar up to 2025 (and beyond?). Would go perfectly with Vietnamese sweet and sour pork ribs.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
