Chris Cormack, the founder of Pegeric, developed his interest in wine while working weekends at his father’s wine and spirit store. As Chris’ interest developed, he turned to the production side and enrolled in the Viticulture course at what is now Charles Sturt University. In 1987 after months of searching, he selected a site for the establishing his own vineyard in the Macedon Ranges, one of the highest and coolest sites suitable for viticulture. The first commercial crop was harvested in 1997.
Late picked in the proper sense meaning that it was before botrytis set in so the wine is still delicate, perfumed and refreshing with only a hint of sweetness that is well balanced by the other characters in the wine. This is a delicious drink that would pair well with fresh fruits and lighter style deserts.
