The super-value baby brother from Astrolabe, this delicious Pinot Noir offers bright cherry fruit and a spicy-savoury nature. It's already drinking beautifully, which for only $20 makes it a unique opportunity. A perfect food and barbeque Pinot - most other wine labels would sell this happily at the $30 price point.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

Winemaker Simon Waghorn has this to say about Durvillea: “All along Marlborough’s coast, clinging to rocks at low tide is the seaweed Durvillea. We know it as bull kelp or rimurapa. As a young man at university I studied seaweed. Named for the captain of the Astrolabe, Durvillea seaweed is my quintessential emblem of our wild coast. The Durvillea grapes are grown in the Waihopai, Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. The grapes are harvested at precisely the right moment and I preserve the purity and intensity of flavour in my winemaking. Durvillea is Astrolabe’s little sister label. This provides us with the opportunity to offer another range of classic Marlborough wines from our Astrolabe vineyards.”

What The Critics Say

90/100 and "Top Rank" Bob Campbell MW

“Supple, fruit-focused and appealing pinot noir with raspberry jube, cherry and violet flavours. Attractive fruit sweetness is balanced by gentle acidity and fine tannins. An entry-level pinot noir that offers great value.” Drink 2017 - 2021
