We all know and love Astrolabe's Sauvignon Blanc but when they turn their hand to other varieties, the result is equally as impressive. This is a beautiful summer Riesling, as in it can take a good chilling, it sits at the drier end of the scale and has lovely long flavours.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"And now for something different. Wines in this range demonstrate (winemaker) Simon's innovative treatment of specific parcels of fruit and his willingness to challenge the 'everyday' winemaking process. Simon loves to experiment while capturing the raw, ethereal and sometimes undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties.

Aromas of fresh apples, lime juice and lemon zest, with aromatic citrus flower in the background. On the palate, zingy, fresh ripe lime and lemon flavours, crisp apples, and a long and clean zesty finish. This wine will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage was grown at Grovetown, in the lower Wairau Valley, and tank-fermented to dryness (4.1 grams/litre of residual sugar). Pale lemon/green, it is a lemon-scented, medium to full-bodied wine with fresh, crisp, citrusy flavour, a slightly minerally streak, and very good vigour and depth. Drink now or cellar."
4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, September 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"This wine smells just like you’ve walked into an orchard growing lemons on one side and apples on the other. So intense yet so delicate and the palate reflects exactly that. But I’d expect nothing less however from Simon Waghorn, winemaker extraordinaire and all-round riesling rockstar. Crafted from his home farm vineyard in Marlborough’s Grovetown district, it has crunchy acidity, a lift of mandarin, nashi and fabulously flinty minerality."
