Astrolabe Wines Pinot Noir Marlborough 2008

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Bright medium red. Redcurrant, raspberry and spices on the inviting nose. Sweet and plush, but with a firm shape to its red berry and cinnamon flavors. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins and very good red-fruity persistence. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2008 Astrolabe Pinot Noir 750ml

On a voyage of discovery in the 1800s, the great ship 'The Astrolabe' visited the shores of Marlborough and discovered the region's significant beauty and potential. Today, its namesake has captured these qualities and created a distinctive range of wines - Astrolabe. Nurturing the attributes of the soil, vine and climate and combining these with his minimalist approach in the winery, Simon Waghorn transforms the region's grapes into stylish and expressive wines. Already with a cult following, wines from Astrolabe offer excitement, exclusivity and exceptional value. Astrolabe Wines was established by a group of friends in 1996, effectively to become Simon Waghorn's own label. All our grapes are sourced from our own vineyard development in the heart of the spectacular Waihopai Valley and from other specially chosen local vineyards in the Marlborough region. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc constitutes 80% of our production. Read less
