What does well aged wine taste like?

Aged wine releases

Pegasus Bay winery in North Canterbury has released three aged wines onto the market, all of them drawn from the temperature controlled cellars at the winery.

The wines are part of the company’s Aged Release programme, which began in 2006 with wines that were 10 years old at the time. This year’s new Aged Release trio of wines includes the 2012 Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir, 2012 Pegasus Bay Riesling and 2012 Pegasus Bay Prima Donna Pinot Noir; an aptly named wine which is a blend of the best tasting barrels, selected by the winemaking team.
The family owned Pegasus Bay winery is based in the Waipara Valley in the heart of North Canterbury.
The wines are available now in specialist wine retailers and direct from Pegasus Bay Winery.
