Perfectly pale and fresh, Astrolabe Rose is like the best of France's dry Provence and Bandol pink wines. Like them it is perfectly clean and elegant, but with the pretty aromatic of berries and florals that Pinot Noir brings to this sophisticated party. A modern classic for Kiwi drinkers.

Overview

Grape

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.

What The Critics Say

Bob Campbell MW

"Creamy-textured rosé with cherry, watermelon and guava flavours. An initial hint of sweetness is balanced by tangy acidity to give a reasonably drying finish. Slightly syrupy. 8/11/2017."
