Main Divide Riesling 2013 Pegasus Bay, Waipara

New Zealand

    I have gone on record saying that the Waipara wine region has the most potential in the whole of New Zealand. With a perfect climate and stunning soils, the top wines here are truly world class. This epic, off-dry Riesling is a phenomenal bargain too.

  • Grape
  • Flavours

    Honeysuckle, Lime, Apricot

  • Origin

    The Waipara valley is 30 minutes' drive from Christchurch in the Canterbury region, and this wine is named in honour of New Zealand's Southern Alps, known locally as the Main Divide, which lies to the west. Some botrytized grapes were added to provide a honeyed richness.

  • Taste

    Slightly off-dry in style, the palate is attacked with wave after wave of honeysuckle, ripe apricot and lime, with a minerally undercurrent and zippy acidity.

  • Enjoy

    Rich and viscous, this wine can be enjoyed by itself but will also harmonise with oysters or chinese duck.

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
