Pegasus Bay Rieslings 

For those who love a good riesling, Pegasus Bay’s range is incredibly unique, outrageously complex and undeniably delicious, with everything dialled up to the max. Their Bel Canto dry Riesling is totally unique because of its concentration and exotic regional character of Orange zest and spice. Made only in years where the fruit can be hung out for an extended time, the grapes are incredibly ripe when harvested, it’s then fermented until it’s almost dry. This produces a rich, full and incredibly expressive wine that has serious length. It is a pure expression of the vineyard with very little wine-making influence. The balance is impeccable with so many twists and turns taking the drinker on a real journey. It’s like nothing else you will have tasted and it’s absolutely delicious.
