Tasting Notes

Previously called Province Sauvignon Blanc.

"I blend to suit what I think is Astrolabe’s st
yle, which reflects what I’ve learnt as a winemaker and drinker over the years. […] My Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc always presents with ripe green flavours like passionfruit, blackcurrant leaf and gooseberry. In the palate, it is full and round and finishes dry and lingering.”
Simon Waghorn, owner and winemaker.


"Powerful gooseberry, white currant, red capsicum, passionfruit and lime peel aromas fill the nose. The palate is  Medium-bodied, with strong flavours of makrut lime, passionfruit, lemongrass and a refreshingly smooth, dry and persistent finish."
Armit Wines.

Food pairings: Fresh, leafy green salads; goat’s cheese; seafood of all types; and dishes with lifted, aromatic herbs. 

Reviews & Scores

"Classic bouquet and palate of tropical fruits, ripe apple, lemon pith and peach tea, along with fresh sage and basil lift. The core of sweet fruit and minerality on the palate is accentuated by refreshing acidity. Well made, lengthy, harmonious and ready" 
94 points. Cameron Douglas MS, Decanter.
