Dry and pale, this delicious Rose is like the best of France's dry Provence and Bandol wines. Savoury and textural, it also has some of the pretty fruit and floral nuances that Pinot Noir brings to this sophisticated party. A modern classic for Kiwi drinkers.

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

Winemaker notes on current 2018 vintage

Delicate shade of rose gold. Aromas of quince and rhubarb crème brûlée, rosewater and bottled stonefruit. Medium bodied dry wine with round, mouth filling flavours of crabapple jelly and quince paste. Best enjoyed while young and fresh, though made to age gracefully. Serve with Light salad or pasta dishes, paella, charcuterie, prawn cocktail, and grilled haloumi."
