Pegasus Bay Vergence White MK1, Waipara

Blended White from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 15-Sep-2020
Brilliantly bright, straw-yellow with a lime hue, even colour throughout. The nose is inviting, well-packed aromas of chamomile, orange blossom and gunflint, melded with zesty citrus fruit, honey nuanced and a dusting of spices. Medium-bodied, flavours of an amalgam of citrus zest, interweave honey, jasmine tea, along with fragrant floral notes, lingers with gunflint details. The wine has lovely intensity and concentration, providing both weight and breath to the palate. The mouthfeel is unctuous and textural, flows smoothly with positive energy and drive, supported by lacy acidity, lingers to a long, sustained finish. This is a textural white blend with intense flavour concentration, a complex range of interest on a positive flow with flinty details. Match with Chinese crispy pork belly and smoked warehou over the next 3-5 years. Predominant ultra-ripe old vines Semillon, blended with Muscat, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay. Different fermentation and maturation techniques applied, including skin contact and lees ageing for some portions. 13.5% alc. 19-/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $27
