    Winemaker Notes

    Light straw color. Pear and quince, light peach and citrus rind and a whiff of cardamom and nougat. Pure, focused wine with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavors dominate, followed by some light citrus. Will age gracefully over the next six years.

    Great as an aperitif, with shellfish and seafood, pâtés, poultry, pork and light game as well as creamy mushroom or egg dishes.

    Astrolabe, New Zealand
    Astrolabe  Winery Image

    An astrolabe is an ancient astronomical calculator with a name that translates as ‘star taker’. In

    1996, when respected career winemaker Simon Waghorn started his own label, reaching for the

    stars seemed appropriate, and he chose the name Astrolabe. Working in a profession at the conflux

    of art and science, there is a certain affinity with the artisans who painstakingly crafted these often

    ornate instruments. Simon has since established a benchmark style of Marlborough sauvignon blanc

    and has been described by New Zealand’s leading Master of Wine, Bob Campbell, as a ‘Sauvignon

    Supremo’.

    After the international success of his Sauvignon Blanc established Astrolabe’s reputation, Simon gave

    up his other winemaking commitments to focus on Astrolabe, which has now become a family

    winery. Simon often refers to Marlborough as a winemaker’s paradise for of its ability to produce

    world class aromatic white wine and Pinot Noir. Simon has long been an advocate for the recognition

    of sub-regional diversity within Marlborough. His convictions are reflected in the wines he makes: a

    diverse range of varieties from small plantings around Marlborough with different expressions of

    terroir. Simon sources fruit from across the whole Marlborough growing region, pushing as far as the

    southern coast, where limestone soils can be found.

    Astrolabe is a winemaker brand, and Simon Waghorn makes the wines to suit his personal palate.

    Simons crafts his Astrolabe wines with precision and harmony, capturing Marlborough’s intense fruit

    and leaving the connoisseur to discover the measured layering of flavors and different dimensions

    as they savor each glass.
