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
This is a very refined Sauvignon Blanc from one of the leading producers in New Zealand. On the nose its hints of Asparagus, green apple and waxed lemon. The palate is lean, crisp and zesty but retains a lovely softness and length. The finish has notes of lime zest and a mineral note.
