Pegasus Bay FINALE Noble Semillon Sauvignon 2021, North Canterbury

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 01-May-2024
Bright, even, medium yellow gold. This has a rich, engaging bouquet packed with aromas of smoke flint and spice overlying apricot, citrus peels, honey and quince paste. Full-bodied, aromas of dried apricot entwined with lemon curd, peach puree, unfolding citrus peels, honey, quince paste, cardamon, ginger and smoke flint. The mouthfeel is opulent; creamy, honey-like texture sustains powerful layers and structure, along with zingy acidity persists a lengthy, refined finish. This Noble Semillon Sauvignon is powerful and harmonious, opulently expressed with finesse and complexity. Match with pan-seared foie gras and blue cheese & fig tart over the next 15+ years. Only produced in exceptional vintages, perfectly botrytised bunches were pressed, fermented in French oak barriques, 50% new, and aged on lees for 12 months. 13.5% alc, 182 g/l RS. 19+/20 pts (97 pts) May 2024 RRP $45
