RegionWaipara, North Canterbury


The vines, many of which are 25 years old and on their own roots, grow on a series of north facing, gradually descending terraces. While the site is warm during the day it is cool at night, which allows the fruit to ripen fully whilst retaining its good, natural acid levels. The drainage is helped by stones intermingled with the soil.
Prima Donna is made in only special years and 2010 was definitely one of these. After maturing for 18 months Pegasus select the barriques which best reflect their vineyard and the season. Typically these come from the oldest vines.  The wine is then carefully blended according to taste to produce Prima Donna.

On release the wine is a deep crimson shot with lingering hints of purple.  It is redolent with suggestions of ripe red-berry fruits, wild cherries and blueberries.  These intertwine with whiffs of barbequed meats, grilled mushrooms, wood-smoke, dark chocolate and vanilla pods.  Although the entry is soft it seems to rapidly expand in the mouth to become rich, powerful and muscular.  In spite of this it retains refinement and poise with a long robe of velvety tannins, which flow through the palate and help draw out its lingering, spicy, tangy after-taste.
