Astrolabe Wines Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

(Top 100: 2012, Rank: 59) This bright, juicy white delivers succulent notes of passion fruit, honeydew melon, Key lime and Asian pear, which together make a clear, focused and intense chorus that persists on the long finish.

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

A little cooked, smells a little like airline food. Green pepper, toasty, meaty with chicken base. Lively with a tender texture, but this has a weird nutty, meaty quality to it. Excellent clarity, cooked chili, fruit. Succulent, super savory finish with cactus pad. Man, is this intensely aromatic on the finish. Green, cooked green. Not sure what to think here. 86pts

Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of grapefruit, tarragon and white pepper. Slightly dry-edged but nicely concentrated, with a tropical note to the flavors of stone fruits and fresh herbs. Supple and well done. Finishes with sneaky grapefruity length. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2011 Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc 750ml
