Pegasus Bay 2011 Sauvignon Semillon and 2010 Prima Donna and Encore

The Donaldson Family of Pegasus Bay are consummate winegrowers making a full and varied range of wines from their Waipara Valley vineyards equally successfully. In doing so, this makes them one of the country’s finest wine producers. The founders, Ivan and Chris Donaldson’s son Matthew is responsible for the winemaking, and the family’s background of experiencing the world’s best wines over many decades has provided him with considerable experience and perspective to fashion wines that are appreciated widely. Here I review the individual 2011 Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend, along with the ‘Reserve’ status 2010 ‘Prima Donna’ Pinot Noir and ‘Encore’ Noble Riesling wines.
