Consistently our top selling Sauvignon Blanc, Astrolabe has set the benchmark for many years and is proof that not all Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs are created equal. It is the attention to detail, viticulture, and winemaking that sets Astrolabe apart. This new release 2019 is as good as it's ever been.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The Astrolabe Province Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes grown across three Marlborough sub-regions – the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley and the Kekerengu Coast. We machine harvest the grapes at night or in the cool parts of the day to preserve the purity and intensity of flavours. In the winery, we take great care to handle the fruit in a way which allows the flavours and aromas of the region to come through. Sauvignon Blanc is widely considered by the wine drinkers of the world to reach its pinnacle of potential in Marlborough. My style is dry, expressive and elegantly balanced. – Simon Waghorn, Winemaker.
 
Pale straw with green highlights. Aromas of lemon grass, lime peel and elderflower, with background notes of white currant and red pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with white peach, gooseberry and citrus flavours, and a dry mineral finish."


18.5/20 Joelle Thompson, March 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Dry, medium bodied, tropical, intense and fruit forward in style. This is the style of Sauvignon Blanc that Marlborough is best known for it over delivers even at a slightly higher price point than many big brands – it’s worth digging deeper for."


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2019 Vintage)
"Ripe, deliciously fruity sauvignon blanc with melon, guava and citrus-lime, together with smattering of fresh herbs."


94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Plush, fleshy, fruity and varietal with aromas of tropical fruits and fresh herbs, an abundance of wet stone mineral scents and white blossom. On the palate – equally fleshy and fruity, crisp, refreshing and just dry on the finish. Flavours of lemon and passionfruit, apple and fresh herb. High acidity – almost sweet to the taste, plenty of mineral and floral layers. Just dry on the finish. A lovely example, balanced and well made. Best drinking from today and through 2023."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage is a regional blend, grown principally in the Awatere Valley (65 per cent). Weighty, it has fresh, ripely herbaceous flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, and a long, crisp, dry (1.3 grams/litre residual sugar) finish."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
