Winemaker Notes

Light Straw. Pear and quince, light peach and citrus rind and a whiff of cardamom and nougat on the nose. The palate is pure and focussed with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavors dominate, followed by some light citrus.

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

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Astrolabe Province Pinot Gris is a lovely white wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh and pleasing. Its bright aromas and flavors of tart citrus and stone fruits are bright and lasting. Pair it with seared scallops. (Tasted: September 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

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.
