Considered to be one of New Zealand's finest producers, Astrolabe have built their reputation on consistently producing exceptional wines. One of my favourite Astrolabe wines is the 2019 Astrolabe Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc. It’s quite a ripe example of the Awatere Valley style, with hints of mango and passionfruit mixed with more typical gooseberry and cut grass flavours. Good intensity and a pleasing texture. - Bob Campbell Lemon grass, lime peel and elderflower aromas with distant notes of white currant and red pepper. White peach, gooseberry and citrus flavours, and a dry mineral finish. Goes great with Seafood and Light Poultry.

Intense, fruity and savoury. Loaded with aromas of fresh herbs and tropical fruits, sweet red apple and peach, wet stone minerality and an even persistent bouquet package. On the palate - crisp, bright, fruity and crunchy with flavours of fresh citrus and tropical fruit, basil and an line of savoury hay and herbs. Youthful too with high acidity easily contrasted by the fruit and its natural sweetness. Balanced and well made, best drinking from today and through 2023+. Drink 2020 - 2023+

Full of youthful impact, the vigorous 2019 vintage is a classic sub-regional style. Light lemon/green, it is intensely varietal, with penetrating melon and green capsicum flavours, pure and delicate, and a crisp, fully dry, long finish.
