Main Divide – Select Southern Wine

30-Mar-2012
The Main Divide label was born out of the availability of quality fruit from growers around the South Island that the Pegasus Bay winery used in making wines distinct from those made only from estate Waipara fruit. ‘Main Divide' refers to the Southern Alps mountain range forming the backbone of the South Island of New Zealand. Winemakers Matt Donaldson and Lynette Hudson have the same approach with the Main Divide wines as with Pegasus Bay of natural winemaking with minimal intervention, to represent the character of each vineyard site or area from where the fruit is sourced. They have a rich and flavoursome consumer-friendly style. The popularity of the wines has seen the brand grow well beyond a ‘second tier' status, and the breadth of the range and the high quality confirms this. www.maindivide.com
