Winemaker Notes: 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. 

The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions, de-stemmed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. Clear, cold-settled juice was fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures, using neutral wine yeast strains to allow the powerful fruit flavours to dominate.

Aromas of lemon grass, lime peel and passionfruit, with background notes of white currant and red pepper. Medium-bodied with white peach, tropical fruits and citrus flavours, and a dry mineral finish.

Sauvignon Blanc is widely considered by the wine drinkers of the world to reach its pinnacle of potential in Marlborough. The style is dry, expressive and elegantly balanced.
