2019 Riesling, Pegasus Bay, Waipara
What started as a weekend hobby, following a gift of Hugh Johnson’s legendary book Wine, has developed into one of New Zealand’s best regarded estates, and a pioneer of the production of Riesling in the country, as well as of the region of North Canterbury. It was Consultant Neurologist, Ivan Donaldson, who founded the estate, and he’s been succeeded by his four sons. The Riesling is the country’s benchmark, with warm days but cool nights crafting an example that has ripe, intense fruit as well as bright acidity. Off-dry, it’s an utterly delicious Riesling, to challenge the world’s best.
