Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir “Prima Donna”
100% Pinot Noir. The wine has a vibrant ruby appearance. On the nose, there is a selection of red fruit aromas (raspberry, pomegranate, and cherry), as well as pepper and clove. Underpinning this are savory notes. The palate is satisfyingly concentrated with fine-grained tannins, and a refreshing minerality which ensures the wine remains tight and focused, with a lasting finish.
Cooler than average Spring temperatures led to a smaller set, resulting in excellent fruit concentration. A warm Summer and long lingering Autumn then followed, allowing this smaller crop to reach optimum ripeness. Prima Donna is made in only special years
