Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir Waipara 2009
Editorial Reviews for Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir Waipara
Woodsy, hint of caramel sweetness, spicy, herbal slightly medicinal. Light, fresh, good berry fruit, fine stemmy herbal notes, nice balance, some dry tannin on finish.
Very floral on the nose, with deep black raspberry fruit edged in slight cough lozenge notes, picking up a hint of blue fruits with air as well as nice stemmy overtones. A bit chewy in the mouth with good acids, but this seems to be a bit soft-styled, with a nice forest floor underlay to the wild cherry fruit in the mouth, which turns flannelly and chewy on the modest finish. 88pts
Four and a half glasses
Perfectly ripened strawberries, dark raspberries with a hint of mint and eucalyptus. Gorgeous nose. Slightly bitter finish though.

Medium ruby colored, the 2006 Prima Donna Pinot Noir reveals an evolving dried cherry and mulberry character on the nose with some coffee, earth and clove hints.
