PEGASUS BAY MAESTRO MERLOT CABERNET 2016
"Maestro is part of our reserve series and represents the very best of our Bordeaux fruit, coming from some of the oldest plantings in the vineyard.
A serious Bordeux blend from Pegasus Bay. Only produced in the best years, the Maestro represents the pinnacle for a slightly lesser known (and under-valued) category in Waipara red wine. Lashings of fruit ripeness and depth are held together by beautifully ageworthy and food freindly tannins. Decant this rare beauty now, or give it pride place in your cellar.
"Complex bouquet of dark red fruits led by Doris plum, blackberry and dark spiced chocolate. Toasty wood spices of clove and baked vanilla, a steely haunt adds complexity and depth. Dry with a contrasting core of red berry fruits, chocolate and wood spice. Firm to fine tannins and warming alcohol. Medium+ acidity and dark fruited core. Coming into balance slowly. Lengthy fine finish."
