Pegasus Bay 2002 Pinot Noir

I just opened a lovely Pegasus Bay 2002 Pinot Noir from the Waipara Valley in New Zealand. I haven't got to the Waipara Valley yet, but when I do this will be one vineyard I will definitely go to.

This wine has a magnificent toast and dark cherry aroma. Echoing the aroma, this wine has a lovely warming, fruity full mouth feel that is not shy of hanging around for a long time. The colour is a very deep red, almost verging on light brown colour.

This is drinking beautifully now but has the structure to support several more years of cellaring.

A delight to drink.
