Astrolabe in Wine Spectator; mouthwatering tasting notes….


The newest edition of Wine Spectator (30 September 2015) just fell on the doormat. The tasting notes by the expert panel on two Astrolabe wines we would like to share with you:

Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Province 2014
Smart Buy – 92 points
“Impressive and delicious, evoking the supple, fleshy texture of biting into a ripe white peach. Features plenty of mouthwatering acidity, along with lemon, ruby grapefruit and pineapple notes, accented by lemon verbena, sea salt and dried honeysuckle. Shows good persistence on the finish.”

Astrolabe Chenin Blanc Marlborough Wrekin Vineyard 2013
90 points

“A honeyed toasty note and dried chamomile accents contrast with the seriously crisp lemon, peach, green apple and grapefruit flavors. Shows nice intensity and juicy acidity, gaining concentration and momentum on the long finish.”
