Judges Comments:

Produced by the very gifted team at Pegasus Bay from North Canterbury and under the direction of Matt Donaldson. In this classic blend the Merlot provides ripe fruit and drinkability, while the Cabernet Sauvignon gives body, backbone and structure. The result is a rich wine with ripe flavours of sweet red berries, plums and blueberry, full flavoured with a long soft finish. Pair this with lamb shoulder chops, slow cooked with thyme and onions.

Pairing Recommendation:

Robust wines for robust food flavours. Try with the Sunday roast, burger and ribs, steak, sausages or game. Great with pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes. Take to a pot-luck dinner or a BBQ with the good friends.
