Pegasus Bay Prima Donna Waipara Pinot Noir 2015 $95

From the second the first whiff of cocoa-covered cherries, black tea, wild berries, truffle and spice assail your nostrils, you know there’s no escape from its clutches.  It’s a dense, deliciously structured, statuesque example of what Waipara is capable of.  So lush, plush and poised, it’s a pinot noir that unveils something new, something exotic, something incredibly sexy with every sip.  Hints of black tea, chocolate and a lovely layer of earthiness to finish, makes this a pinot noir with a long life ahead of it.  Stunning stuff.
