ASTROLABE

Named after a 19th-century explorer’s ship, Astrolabe is Simon and Jane Waghorn’s voyage into winemaking exploration in New Zealand’s Marlborough region and is now 100% family-owned. The family-owned estate is rightly celebrated for wines that express the variety of their soil and the nuances of their terroir: from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys to the Kekerengu Coast. Astrolabe wines reflect the Waghorn’s innovative treatment of specific parcels and winemaking process to capture undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties, resulting in some of the most pure and elegant wines from the region.

TASTING NOTES

Hailed a curvy, racy beauty from Antonio Galloni and a fascinating wine from Monica Larner, Sassicaia 2017 is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Sassicaia 2017 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. In her preview assessment of the wine, Larner describes incredibly well the tension existing from vintner and vintage and how, like...

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...

The third wine of the estate and one that was produced since 2003, Le Difese is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats and it is then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels and for a further three months in the bottle. The younger addition to the...

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

Bottle 75cl £16.84

TASTING NOTES

Pure, focused wine with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavours dominate, followed by some light citrus. Will age gracefully over the next six years. Great as an aperitif, with shellfish and seafood, pâtés, poultry, pork and light game as well as creamy mushroom or egg dishes.

TASTING NOTES

Lemon gold. Fresh-cut passionfruit, guava, lime curd, currant leaf and citrus zest. Powerful passionfruit, guava and limoncello flavours, and a rich texture with a very long finish. This wine will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing. Seafood of all types (especially oysters), leafy summer salads, or as an aperitif.
