Pegasus Bay Aged Release Pinot Noir 2013

  • New Zealand
  • Pinot Noir
  • ABV 14
  • Zalto Denk'Art Burgundy Glass

Stuart McCloskey "As Burgundian a Kiwi nose will ever achieve – Iron, rose petal, pomegranate, violet, redcurrant, mint, aromatic spice, liquorice, smoky minerality, dried mushroom, truffle, earth, dried orange skin, menthol and undergrowth. A real sense of aged autumn in a glass. Classic Pinot, that’s for sure… The palate is silky, tactile and immensely enjoyable. I can see me sitting down with a fire, goose breast, red cabbage and the entire bottle. Wonderfully refined, the tannins are svelte and melt away. Lots of minerality… Flavours build slowly. So suave – more of a seductive charmer, which makes for a perfect winters' partner. It’s certainly showing its pedigree. I am smitten and look forward to enjoying a bottle over the Christmas break. Outstanding and released at the optimum time. Served using Zalto Burgundy glassware (no need to decant). Drink now to 2026." 

18.5 Points – Raymond Chan “Moderately deep ruby-red with a hint of garnet, lighter on the rim. The nose is rich and deep with aromas of plum, dried cherry, liquorice, herb, autumn leaves and savoury elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of plum and dried cherry interweaved with dried raspberry hold a savoury edge, unfolding dried herb, autumn leaves, liquorice, mushroom and cedar. The wine shows concentration with a depth of flavour and a long linger, carrying fine cinnamon and nutmeg spices. The ripe and velvety tannins flow along smoothly with power and rich flavours. This readily aged Pinot Noir shows a rich, ripe palate with excellent concentration, depth, and a savoury lingering finish. Match with smoked duck and roasted lamb shoulder over the next 5 years. Fermented with 10% whole bunches, cold soaked for 1 week, then fermented naturally, post-ferment maceration for a week approx. Aged in French oak barriques, 30% new oak for 18 months.”
