Aromatic but dry and thoroughly delicious, Astrolabe impresses again with this classic Loire grape that is too-little seen in NZ. Fresh but not harsh acidity holds up restrained fruit and heaps of minerally stuff. A very stylish aperitif/fish wine and a 'cool' side-step for Chardonnay and Sauvignon lovers alike, this line is rare in retail so we recommend trying some in your next box.

Overview

Grape

Chenin Blanc

Its Origins

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.
