Description

Astrolabe Wrekin Chenin Blanc

Astrolabe Wrekin Chenin Blanc has a racy and crisp structure. Pale gold colour. Green apple and honeysuckle bouquet with a drop of lemon honey and vanilla. Medium-bodied and focused on the palate with a distinctively crisp acidity and persuasive mineral length. Crisp apple and pear, lemon citrus and a hint of sweet peach flavours with a good dose of honey and vanilla. White Burgundy lovers will be wowed by the exquisite fruit complexity and mineral-edged purity.

100% Chenin Blanc grown at Wrekin vineyard in Upper Brancott Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand. The soils are some of the oldest in the province, with a glacial outwash base and ranging from deep loams to tight clays on a steeply sloping hillside.

After hand-picking, the fruit goes through whole cluster pressing. hand pick the grapes to give a delicacy to the phenolics. The cuveé juice goes through partial barrel fermentation with wild yeast for complexity, with the remainder in stainless steel to preserve the fruit flavours. All fruit is free-run to retain purity.

Ageing potential: Made to age gracefully. Weight and honey flavours will results form cellaring.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Simon and Jane Waghorn’s complex, partly barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc shows that it’s not just South Africa that can impress with this Loire variety. Rich, creamy, leesy notes join honeyed apple crumble flavours and a squeeze of lemon acidity.

For a wine that has had a lot of work done to it (whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented with wild yeast, time on solids, lees stirring, aged in french barriques), this is a surprisingly delicate and unassuming little number. The nose is dainty with aromas of apples, blossoms and a little spice. The palate shows a lovely balance of texture and mouth watering acidity, juicy fruit and white spice. Drink now.
