The top tier of chardonnay at Pegasus Bay is in great form with a more reserved style than the regular estate bottling from the same the year. Fruit aromas are in the grapefruit and green mango zone. The palate heads more in a stone fruit direction. Supple and fresh.

Tasting notes - Complex aromas of green coffee bean and vanilla pod are complemented by notes of wild flowers, crushed herbs and just a hint of gunflint. The palate is rich and unctuous with layers of preserved lemon, ripe papaya, cocoa powder and toasted hazelnut with hints of red berry.

|Colour:||At bottling the wine was very pale with light green tints. With time we expect that it will develop some pale gold hints.|
|Bouquet:||Like a Chameleon! Sometimes it’s lemons and grapefruit, then it’s marmalade, then it’s peachy and sometimes a hint of feijoa is lobbed in.|
|Palate:||Surprisingly rich, full and textural. The stonefruit character fills and the mid palate and gives the wine length and breadth.|
Vibrantly aromatic, sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc, with grapefruit, gooseberry and passion fruit aromas. In the mouth there is impressive weight and texture, married to fresh, citrus-dominated flavour, and leading to a dry, minerally finish.
