Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

92 POINTS: Bob Campbell MW
92 POINTS: Wine Spectator
Another superb Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from the talented crew at Astrolabe. Pale straw with green highlights. Lemongrass, lime peel and elderflower, with background notes of white currant and red pepper. Medium-bodied with white peach, gooseberry and citrus flavours, and a dry mineral finish.

Astrolabe was created in 1996 by winemaker Simon Waghorn, the culmination of a career that began in South Australia in 1982. Winemaking later led Simon and his family from Te Kauwhata to
Gisborne, where he specialised in Chardonnay, and eventually to Marlborough where in 1996 he and his wife Jane Forrest-Waghorn joined with old friends Paul Davenport and Sally Lewis to have a go at their own label…and so began Astrolabe. Today they work with a number of growers scattered all over Marlborough, from Awatere valley to the Kekerengu coast to the Wairau Valley, developing a wide portfolio of iconic wines that celebrate the varieties and terroirs of Marlborough.

A truly Marlborough style sauvignon blanc that comprises a blend of fruit from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Quite concentrated grapefruit, guava and subtle passionfruit flavours supported by fruity acidity. Good weight and texture 27/10/2017." Drink 2017 - 2020
