Pegasus Bay ‘Prima Donna’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2006

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 07-Feb-2011
This was youthful, purple hued ruby red in colour. Very tight in expression on nose, this had restrained, subtly expressed, rich black fruits with beautiful oak nuance and a dry, earthy minerality. The palate was brilliantly fine with rich, fine dark fruit flavours and substantial, but very refined tannin extraction and superb acid freshness. Luscious and lively, yet with great class and style. This is grand cru burgundy in style, and could have been seen as such. I saw it so.  Oct 2010
