Astrolabe Wines was established in 1996, as winemaker Simon Waghorn's own label. Astrolabe produces a range of wines that express the purity and intensity of fruit flavours naturally afforded by the climate and soils of Marlborough. All grapes are sourced from unique Marlborough sites, carefully chosen to add complexity and completeness in the wines. Simon is fascinated by the distinctive qualities of the Awatere Valley and Kekerengu Coast sub-regions, whether bottled alone, or blended as part of the Marlborough classic. Simon’s skill and accumulated experience capture the essence of Marlborough in wines of purity, focus and balance
One the nose you get a lovely hint of stoned fruits and a touch of peach blossom. The palate has a lovely richness with some subtle citrus notes and a touch of white pepper. On the finish the wine has great depth and length.
