90pts Wine Spectator

Vibrant and powerful lemon, freshly grated ginger and Key lime notes are succulent and juicy on a smooth frame. Fresh acidity turns up the volume on the pure fruit flavors. Drink now.

90pts Wilfred Wong

The Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been of the winery's most consistent and satisfying wines. The 2018 vintage is showing exceptionally well.  This wine is bright, zippy, a fresh from start to finish. Its aromas of grapefruit peel, mineral accents should pair nicely with a dozen or more freshly-shucked oysters. (Tasted: September 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA) 

Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with green highlights. Aromas of lemongrass, lime peel, and elderflower, with background notes of white currant and red pepper. Medium-bodied with white peach, gooseberry, and citrus flavors, and a dry mineral finish. Very enjoyable when young and fresh; will age gracefully with careful cellaring.

 

Suggested foods include fresh, leafy green salads; seafood of all types; and dishes with lifted, aromatic herbs.
