"Pretty, with floral overtones, delivering lemon curd, dried mango and pineapple punches of flavor. Appealing for its smooth texture and crisp acidity. Drink now. 41,000 cases imported." â€“MW of WS

The quest for quality in all aspects is the hallmark of Peregrine, evidenced by the global acclaim for their wines, the highest international architectural accolades for their beautiful wing spanned winery and the excellence of their customer service programmes.
Set majestically in the rugged mountainous beauty of Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand, this privately owned producer is committed to enhancing the environment with both their organically certified estates and winery and their ‘hands on‘ involvement in the conservation of New Zealand’s native birds, the Saddleback and Mohua.
Passionate wine producers and estate owners, Lindsay McLachlan and Greg Hay, have a philosophy of producing wine that is truly representative of the Central Otago region, drawing only the very best hand-picked fruit from 11 sites around the Lowburn, Bendigo and Gibbston sub regions. In its short history it has been an impressive high achiever, with its wines winning numerous prestigious awards and trophies around the world.
Peregrine produced its first vintage in 1998, and although known as a specialist Pinot Noir house, it also produces excellent Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer.
