A sense of real depth, soothing dark cherry notes, some forest floor and deeply knitted oak. The palate has noble tannins and the sort of structural complexity and completeness that is the envy of most other NZ Pinot Noir...

Mouth-filling wine with obvious power and a lengthy finish. A consistently top wine that shows the benefit of vine age.

Peg Bay is the flagship winery of Waipara, yet the wines remain realistically priced. Plum, cola and cherry notes are accompanied by strongly umami sensations akin to mushroom and roasted beef, giving this wine ample complexity. While the wine is concentrated, it has an airy, graceful feel to it. Drink 2016–2024.

Beautifully elegant and ethereal on the palate with silky tannins framing the perfumed red berries, it finishes long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

On the nose this wine has an elegant bouquet of cranberries, red raspberries and maraschino cherries along with hints of clay, baking spice, and dried tobacco. Enticing flavors of dried red fruits, lilacs, cinnamon and a nice oak backbone present themselves on the medium-bodied palate. Fine-grained, smooth tannins and lively acidity carries the wine through the finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir that will continue to improve with age. Best between 2016 – 2028.
