Description

Astrolabe Awatere Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Astrolabe Awatere Sauvignon Blanc is a linear, singular and pure wine that showcases Awatere Valley as a whole.

Pale straw colour with green highlights. Focused bouquet of lime zest and fresh herbs like lemongrass, basil, blackcurrant leaf and nettle. Full mouthfeel with a nice mouth-coating texture from clay soils. Dry and medium-bodied with a vibrant balanced acidity and savoury character. Green spectrum flavours across the board with lime citrus, gooseberry, white currants and fresh herbs. Crisp and saline finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc from Awatere Valley vineyards on both the north and south of the river. This reflects the different soil fertility and flavour these sites contribute. A blend of two sites from the vineyards of the Lissaman and Jones families. Vines in Awatere Valley grow in clay soils and experience a cooler, windier climate than the rest of Marlborough.

Machine harvesting of the grapes at night or in the cool parts of the day to preserve the purity and intensity of flavours. Next is de-stemming and a light pressing with minimal skin contact. After cold-settling, the clear juice goes through fermentation with neutral wine yeast strains in stainless steel vats at low temperatures.

 

Ageing potential: will age gracefully with careful cellaring but very enjoyable young and fresh.
