Astrolabe Awatere Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"Showing clear sub-regional characteristics, the 2021 vintage was grown at three sites in the Awatere Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied and herbaceous, with melon and green capsicum flavours, revealing excellent purity and delicacy, balanced acidity and a long, fully dry finish." 5 Stars Michael Cooper
"Fragrant and exacting bouquet, savoury, and fresh. Citrus and white stone fruits, salty air, fresh and dried herbs with a rocky mineral complexity. On the palate – delicious, tense and youthful, a core of fruit with flavours of lemon and grapefruit, white fleshed stone fruits, a savoury dried herb complexity and lengthy salivating salty finish. A delicious and vivacious wine with a core of fruit and varietal power. Best drinking from purchase and through 2025." Cameron Douglas MS
Out of all of the Astrolabe Sauvignon Blanc's this one has long been the Primo Vino favourite. An absolute classic, that over delivers in every way.
