Made by the Pegasus Bay crew – a primo Waipara producer with international recognition for their classy line up of wines. Main Divide Merlot Cabernet

Main Divide is the little brother to their Pegasus Bay label and just quietly we reckon it’s packing well above its weight for under twenty bucks. Main Divide is the name given to the mighty Southern Alp range, nicknamed the “backbone of the South Island” by some southerners. Backbone is exactly what this stunning white has got in abundance.

Plump, smooth and utterly delicious Bordeaux style blend red using the traditional varities for this style, Merlot and Cabernet. Aged in French oak for two years to allow it to mature and mellow. All you need now is some grilled chops to serve it with – veal, pork or lamb with some herbs from your garden (thyme, rosemary or oregano) will do just nicely!
