Pegasus Bay 2016 White (North Canterbury)
This 70–30 blend of Sauvignon and Semillon is a textural and nuanced drop. High solids and a little Chardonnay-like on the nose, it wafts salted nuts, honey and smoky, flinty nuances. Underneath lie subtle citrus characters. The mouthfeel is both slippery and refreshing, a delicate balanced of texture and acidity. This could age nicely in bottle. Drink now through 2027.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
