Pegasus perfection

Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2016, Waipara, NZD $42

Fresh and flavoursome chardonnay with grapefruit marmalade, apricot, peach, brioche and flinty mineral flavours. Satisfyingly complex wine with a great texture and very lengthy finish. A bright, high energy wine that promises to develop well with bottle age. (Screwcap)
