Main Divide | Canterbury

Main Divide Mountain Range in New Zealand

The second label of Pegasus Bay, Main Divide is the local name for the mighty range of Southern Alps which form the backbone of Te Wai Pounamu in the South Island of New Zealand. The wines reflect the unspoilt freshness, purity, vigour and cool climate of the south, while retaining in each its individual regional and varietal character.

A handful of selected North Canterbury vineyards have been chosen because of their unique situations or terroir and the quality of their grapes. Working with the growers of these vineyards throughout the season to obtain quality fruit, the Donaldson family then hand-craft it into wine at their Waipara winery.

Main Divide's philosophy is based on individuality and harmony, producing distinctive, vibrant wines with lively fruit flavours, which at the same time are integrated and harmonious.
