2021 Tasting note to follow



Attractive cabernet franc character with cherry and redcurrant aromas and flavours. Dried flowers also. Medium round tannins give it tension and form. Some hazelnut and cedar flavours too. Will come together even more in the bottle”

- James Suckling Wine Reviews, jamessuckling.com, USA
“Sweetly ripe and beautifully fragrant with dark berry, rich floral, game, dried herb and toasted nut characters, it's beautifully rounded on the palate displaying succulent fruit flavours with supple texture and loads of polished tannins. Varietally expressive and wonderfully structured with a persistent engaging finish.”
- Sam Kim, www.wineorbit.co.nz, NZ


“It's delightfully fruited and enticingly complex on the nose showing Black Doris plum, toasted spice, hazelnut and dried herb notes, followed by a beautifully rounded palate offering succulent fruit flavours backed by silky texture and fine grainy tannins. Well structured with gorgeous complexity.”

“It’s always a bold move to bottle a 100% Cabernet Franc, but this has certainly been the right decision for the Pegasus Bay team … delicious, dry, savoury with a core of fruit, firm tannins with a fine chalky texture, an abundance of acidity and overall harmonious story of wine ” 
- Cameron Douglas MS, www.camdouglasms.com, NZ
“ … fine-grained tannin and integrated acidity. Pretty and delicate yet structured and broad on the palate. This is a complete package of Cabernet Franc, possesses plush fruit, savoury complexity, floral and herbaceous details.”
- Candice Chow, raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz, NZ
“ … A high-energy cabernet franc. Good food wine. Offers cellaring potential.
- Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, AUS & NZ
