Description

Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc reveals a lovely layering of flavours and aromas that you can keep finding as you spend time savouring the glass. A complex blend of different vineyards.

Pale straw colour with green highlights. Powerful gooseberry, lime peel and passionfruit aromas with a layer of red capsicum and fresh-cut grass. A drier style of Sauvignon Blanc with a cut-throat acidity. Full and round mouthfeel, expressive and elegantly balanced. Ripe green flavours like gooseberry, makrut lime, passionfruit, lemongrass and blackcurrant leaf. Refreshingly smooth with a dry and persistent finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are grown across three Marlborough sub-regions: the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley and the Kēkerengū Coast. The blend of sites, soils and aspects within this wine gives it great complexity, reflecting both the capability of the region as a whole and Simon Waghorn’s palate.

The grapes are from the vineyards of the Lissaman, van Asch, Hammond, Trolove, Wilson, Halliday, Rose and Jones families. Free-draining stony, silty loam soils, with some vineyards having clay or limestone content.

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 can be enjoyed now.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Bob Campbell – 95 POINTS

 Bright, fresh and concentrated sauvignon blanc with punchy regional and varietal flavours including capsicum, nettle, gooseberry, melon and subtle passionfruit. A deliciously accessible wine that delivers everything I expect from Marlborough Sauvignon … and more

WILFRED WONG OF   – 90 POINTS

The Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been of the winery’s most consistent and satisfying wines. The 2018 vintage is showing exceptionally well. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright, zippy, a fresh from start to finish. Its aromas of grapefruit peel, mineral accents should pair nicely with a dozen or more freshly-shucked oysters. (Tasted: September 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Vibrant and powerful lemon, freshly grated ginger and Key lime notes are succulent and juicy on a smooth frame. Fresh acidity turns up the volume on the pure fruit flavors.

This wine is heady in pineapple, peach and grass aromas. There’s a lovely texture to the palate, with the creaminess balanced by bright acidity.
