Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This rich Chard doesn't hit you over the head, rather, it seduces you slowly. First with a nose showing mild tropical notes and vanilla, then a very subtle palate with ripe tropical guava, pineapple, vanilla and buttered toast. Rich creamy mouthfeel and a delicious smooth, creamy tropical finish.
Clos Pegase winery takes its name from the mythical and immortal Pegasus, the winged horse of Greek mythology whose thundering hooves unleashed the mythical Spring of the Muses, giving rise to both wine and art. The winery has been making wine since 1984. The winery bought Mitsuko's Vineyard in 1989 by founder Jan Shrem, who named it in honour of his wife as a Valentine's Day gift. He wrapped a gift box filled with the new vineyard's soil This 365 acre vineyard is located about three kilometres from San Francisco Bay, and enjoys a cooling influence from the water. - Community Wine Reviews
