Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Heady notes of lemon and lime zest, passionfruit, snow pea and tomato stem lead on this crunchy and highly refreshing wine from a consistently delicious label in an excellent vintage. It slips and slides over the tongue, leading to a long, limey finish that makes it easy to take another sip.
The ripe yet tangy 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is far from the Marlborough stereotype. It is intensely concentrated and offers a powerful core of pure fruit, reminiscent of fresh gooseberries, red apple and lime. The finish is punchy yet balanced.
ppealing for its restraint, with mineral, dried lavender, white grapefruit and green apple flavors that gain momentum before the juicy finish takes over, offering a refreshing combination with plenty of detail. Drink now. 6,400 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
