Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright crimson

Aroma

Cherries and ripe brambly fruits, with a light savoury and earthy background.

Palate

Soft, full and fruity, with ripe cherry/berry flavours, some defining oak tannin structure and a generous weight.

Cellaring

Will reward careful cellaring, through the development of bottle age complexities. However, the wine is already drinking well, and should be at peak by early 2015.

Food Matching

A great match with asian and wild duck, rare lamb and venison, char-grilled chicken or tuna. Serve Cool room temperature.

The Winemker

Simon Waghorn is a winemaker. Astrolabe Wines is a winemaker label.

Astrolabe was created in 1996, and is a culmination of a winemaking career that began in 1982. All Simon’s skill and experience combine to capture the essence of Marlborough in wines of purity, focus and elegance.

Simon is fascinated by the distinctive qualities of the Awatere Valley, Wairau Valley and Kekerengu Coast sub-regions of Marlborough, whether bottled alone or when blended.

What's in a name?

As well as being a navigational instrument, L’Astrolabe was the name of the ship of French explorer Dumont d’Urville who explored the Marlborough coast in 1827.

Simon chose the name Astrolabe because of the historic ties with Marlborough, and he liked the connotations of exploration and discovery.
