Everybody knows Astrolabe for their revered Sauvignon Blanc but this wine is yet more proof they do great things across the board. 
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"An aroma of full ripe melon and dried stone fruits and fig, light nut meal and brûlée notes, with some light leesiness. A wine of gentle creaminess and elegant texture, with tropical and stonefruit flavours, pleasing weight and long, dry finish."
4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Although it might confound you to understand how someone could chuck in a scintillating study path in the physiology of seaweed (phaeophycology in case you’re curious) to embark on a career in wine – that’s exactly what Simon Waghorn did. Thank heaven because we wouldn’t have this tangy, grapefruit pith, peach stone and toasty, textural slightly creamy chardonnay that has Energiser Bunny persistence of flavour."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 vintage was hand-picked at two sites (Astrolabe Farm Vineyard, in the lower Wairau Valley, and Wrekin Vineyard, in the Southern Valleys), and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques and puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and vibrant, with strong grapefruit and peach flavours, slightly buttery and toasty notes, and good complexity. Drink now or cellar."
