Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with green highlights. A bouquet of lemongrass, lime peel and elderflower, with background notes of white currant and red pepper. Medium-bodied with white peach, gooseberry and citrus flavours, and a dry mineral finish.

Pairs well with summer salads, poultry and all seafood, especially green-lipped mussels.

One of world's top Sauvignon Blancs, the 2015 Astrolabe Province is fresh, light and food friendly. Yes, this is one of my favorites with simple seafoods and conversations with good friends. Light to medium straw in color; active aromas of grapefruit peel and other ripe citrus notes, excellent depth; medium bodied, zesty on the palate; bright flavors, ripe citrus abounding; medium finish, richly textured in the aftertaste. (Tasted: May 6, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Crisp lime, grapefruit, passion fruit and lemongrass flavors are accented by fresh ginger notes. Smooth and succulent, especially on the finish.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Intense cat and grapefruit nose; grass and sweet herbs; juicy and tangy with citrus and gooseberry; long and aggressive.

Wine Enthusiast
If this lacks the exotic richness and drama of the very best Marlborough Sauvignons, it's still a tasty drop. Fig and melon notes suggest ample ripeness, while hints of leafy greens provide hallmark varietal character, finishing crisp and clean. In golf terms, it's straight and true, down the middle of the fairway.

Astrolabe Winery Image

First generation winemaker Simon Waghorn has been honing his craft over thirty six years and has established a benchmark style of sauvignon blanc that reflects an unparalleled diversity of vineyard sources. Careful site selection, expert picking decisions, delicate fruit handling and astute blending are the hallmarks of his Marlborough wines. Simon chose the name Astrolabe because of historic ties with Marlborough and connotations of exploration and discovery. Together with his wife, Jane, they founded Astrolabe in Marlborough in 1996. Astrolabe is family owned and operated. All grapes are sourced from ten families who live on their land and farm sustainably. Each site was chosen for the distinctive flavour it produces. We work with dedicated growers who understand the rhythms of the land and know how to grow grapes that express the terroir. Simon is fascinated by the distinctive qualities of the Wairau Valley, Awatere Valley and Kekerengu Coast sub-regions, whether bottled alone or blended as part of the Province range.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
