Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc reveals a lovely layering of flavours and aromas that you can keep finding as you spend time savouring the glass. A complex blend of different vineyards.

Grape Varietal & Region: 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are grown across three Marlborough sub-regions: the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley and the Kēkerengū Coast. The blend of sites, soils and aspects within this wine gives it great complexity, reflecting both the capability of the region as a whole and Simon Waghorn's palate.

The grapes are from the vineyards of the Lissaman, van Asch, Hammond, Trolove, Wilson, Halliday, Rose and Jones families. Free-draining stony, silty loam soils, with some vineyards having clay or limestone content.

Taste Profile: Pale straw colour with green highlights. Powerful gooseberry, lime peel and passionfruit aromas with a layer of red capsicum and fresh-cut grass. A drier style of Sauvignon Blanc with a cut-throat acidity. Full and round mouthfeel, expressive and elegantly balanced. Ripe green flavours like gooseberry, makrut lime, passionfruit, lemongrass and blackcurrant leaf. Refreshingly smooth with a dry and persistent finish

Winemaking Process: Machine harvesting of the grapes at night or in the cool parts of the day to preserve the purity and intensity of flavours. Next is de-stemming and a light pressing with minimal skin contact. After cold-settling, the clear juice goes through fermentation with neutral wine yeast strains in stainless steel vats at low temperatures.

Ageing potential: will age gracefully with careful cellaring but can be enjoyed now.
