Scores

"The ripe yet tangy 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is far from the Marlborough stereotype. It is intensely concentrated and offers a powerful core of pure fruit, reminiscent of fresh gooseberries, red apple and lime. The finish is punchy yet balanced."
92 points, Rebecca Gibb, Vinous

“Classic bouquet and palate with flavours of tropical fruits and apple, lemon pith and peach tea, fresh herbs of sage and basil. The core of fruit and minerality are accentuated by sweet acidity and its palate refreshing qualities. Well made, lengthy, harmonious and ready. Best drinking from today and through 2025+.” 
94 points, Cameron Douglas, Decanter

“The classy 2021 vintage (5*) was grown in the Awatere Valley (49 per cent), Kekerengu (21 per cent), the Southern Valleys (21 per cent) and the Wairau Valley (9 per cent). Very fresh and weighty, it has lifted, herbaceous aromas and vibrant, penetrating flavours of melons, limes and green capsicums, appetisingly crisp, fully dry and sustained.” 
Michael Cooper - 5 stars

”Concentrated, luscious sauvignon blanc, with juicy passionfruit, guava and pink grapefruit flavours supported by tangy acidity that gives a refreshingly crisp finish. A skilfully-made wine with an impeccable sweet-and-sour balance. Drink 2021 - 2025.” 
94 points, Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review

Tasting Notes

"This is a drier style of sauvignon blanc, acidity kept nicely in balance with the alcohol and the very little residual sugar that is there, so it’s all about how all these things come together to make a pleasurable whole. I craft my wines so that nothing stands out as one singular spike, instead revealing a lovely layering of flavours and aromas that people can keep finding as they spend time savouring the glass."
Simon Waghorn, Winemaker

ProducerAstrolabe

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.
