Main Divide is the local name for the mighty range of Southern Alps which form the backbone of Te Wai Pounamu, the South Island of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Main Divide is a 100% Pinot Noir, grapes sourced from vineyards in the South Island. Part of the Pegasus Bay stable – the vineyards have been selected for their quality and ability to express unique regional flavours. Traditional Burgundian winemaking methods were used to make this wine.
It is bright ruby in appearance with complex aromas of red and dark fruits, such as raspberries, blackberries, black cherries and purple plums. Layered beneath this are hints of chocolate, vanilla and spice. On the palate it is rich and powerful, with ripe and velvety tannins adding a satisfying mouth feel. This seasons smaller crop has resulted in a wine with excellent concentration, structure and length.
