Pelorus Vintage spends 3 years on lees prior to disgorging. Made in limited quantities since 1987, Pelorus Vintage is a complex blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. Released at four years of age, the style is generous and full-bodied, brimming with richly concentrated fruit and a creamy mousse.
Like memories of a late summer picnic, Pelorus Vintage 2004 has enticing aromas of ripe red apples, quince jam and rosehips. The wine has a fine, elegant structure that bursts with flavour ... freshly baked lemon biscotti with a nougat nuttiness and creamy minerality ... leading seamlessly into a long, crisp finish.
