Now its the same price as their great Sauginon and Pinot Gris. Perfectly pale and fresh, Astrolabe Rosé is dry like the best of France's Provence and Bandol pink wines. Like them it is perfectly clean and elegant, but with the pretty aromatic of berries and florals that Kiwi Pinot Noir can't help but bring to this very sophisticated party. Delicate and delightful, this Rose is poised to become a classic among Kiwi drinkers clamouring for a local Rose that's actually dry. Try this!

Overview

Pinot Noir

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.
