Description

"Offering good value, Pegasus Bay’s red is fragrant, full-coloured and mouth filling, with plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, showing excellent ripeness and depth" Michael Cooper, The Listener Magazine, 2019

On release the wine has a deep and vibrant ruby colour. The generous aromas and flavours suggest wild blackberries, purple plums and cassis with hints of vanilla pod, cigar box and dark chocolate. While it is generously mouth filling and broad shouldered it is also well rounded with ripe velvety tannins and a lingering finish.

The Merlot gives it sweet raspberry, wild blackberry and purple plum aromas and flavours, as well as a plump, rich mid-palate. The Cabernet provides a vibrant cassis-like character and a back-bone of muscley, ripe tannins which give structure and length in the mouth. These impressions linger well after swallowing and draw out the wine's palate length.
