Trophy for Champion Sauvignon Blanc - Six Nations Wine Challenge 2017
Gold Medal - Six Nations Wine Challenge 2017

The other Sauvignon Blanc label from Astrolabe, purely from Marlborough's more southern Awatere Valley, and the one that Bob Campbell MW has consistently scored in the mid-nineties for many years now. He also selected it for the 2017 Six Nations Wine Challenge, one of the world's truly unique wine competitions featuring the very best wines from six new world wine producing countries where this wine from Astrolabe deservedly took out the Trophy for Champion Sauvignon Blanc. A tremendous result!  
5 Star & 95/100 Bob Campbll MW, Gourmet Traveller (2016 Vintage)
"The 10 vintages of this wine tasted since 2007 have averaged a near-gold score of 94.8 points, an outstanding achievement that probably makes it my top sauvignon blanc label. It helps that I particularly like the wine’s consistently tangy, cool-climate style that gives a nod in the direction of Sancerre. It has classic tomato leaf, nettle, chalky mineral and capsicum flavours. Nicely weighted wine with a dry, but not austere, texture. Impressive concentration and length."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Grown at two sites in the Awatere Valley, the classy 2016 vintage is a very typical sub-regional style, currently in full stride. Light lemon/green, it is full-bodied and bone-dry, with pure, penetrating melon and green-capsicum flavours, racy, harmonious and long."
