A great year for this famously balanced and minerally Sauvignon — wich is now under a new label. The vineyard sources include the warmer Wairau Valley, but the bell curve of Marlborough flavour is also harmonised by the cooler valley influences of gooseberry and green citrus. This delicious wine is a super-classic of the style, from the safest hands in Marlborough Sav.

Overview

Sauvignon 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.

What The Critics Say

94/100 and rated Excellent, Cameron Douglas MS

"Plush, fleshy, fruity and varietal with aromas of tropical fruits and fresh herbs, an abundance of wet stone mineral scents and white blossom. On the palate – equally fleshy and fruity, crisp, refreshing and just dry on the finish. Flavours of lemon and passionfruit, apple and fresh herb. High acidity – almost sweet to the taste, plenty of mineral and floral layers. Just dry on the finish. A lovely example, balanced and well made." Drink 2020 - 2023

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Ripe, deliciously fruity sauvignon blanc with melon, guava and citrus-lime, together with smattering of fresh herbs. A creamy-textured wine with good weight and a lingering finish. Textbook Marlborough sauvignon 6/12/2019." Drink 2019 - 2023
