What You Need To Know
One of the odder strokes of bad luck
in the wine industry hit Astrolabe in 2011, when 4,000 cases
of this Marlborough winery’s zesty Sauvignon Blanc were lost
in a shipwreck on New Zealand’s Astrolabe reef. (Adding to the
irony: an astrolabe is an ancient navigation instrument.) It
brought international attention to this label, which was founded
by former Whitehaven winemaker Simon Waghorn, his wife, Jane,
and two old friends. Created in 1996, Astrolabe was a small side
project for Waghorn until he quit Whitehaven a few years ago
to focus on Astrolabe full time. Waghorn incorporates fruit from
seven different Pinot Noir clones into this wine, blending them to
achieve a red layered with spice and fruit notes.
Fragrant black cherry, with
smoke and cinnamon notes.
Black cherry, cola
and spice flavors are
bright and focused.
Decant and serve at cellar
should be cool to the touch.
Mushrooms, duck, quail
and oily fish such as tuna
