Pegasus Bay 2012 Sauvignon Semillon, and 2011 Chardonnay and Finale

Richness is the byword for Pegasus Bay’s white wines. The dry wines have weight and the aromatics the extra dimension of sweetness. The sweet whites are positively unctuous. They all have detail and complexity that ranges from relatively subtle to on-the-edge full-on. The overall quality is their deliciousness that appeals to all. The winemaking team led by Matthew Donaldson has developed the current styles over two decades. This is why Pegasus Bay’s wins are appreciated by new wine drinkers as well as those who are sophisticated and experienced wine enthusiasts. Here, I review three Pegasus Bay whites that span the range of styles which should meet with appeal by the widest of audiences.


  • Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Sauvignon/Semillon 2012
  • Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Chardonnay 2011
  • Pegasus Bay ‘Finale’ Waipara Valley Noble Semillon 2011
