95 POINTS: Cameron Douglas MS

Chardonnay is stealing the limelight in Marlborough. Simon Waghorn from Astrolabe cut his teeth making Chardonnay in Gisborne, and this organically-grown Marlborough wine puts his knowledge on display. Weighty and full but with vibrant aromatics, defined fruit and minerally freshness: this is why Marlborough Chard is underpriced. But Astrolabe have known that for years. Try it!

“Complex, sophisticated, pure, ripe and very enticing bouquet. Aromas and flavours of apple and grapefruit, white peach and white apricot then apple. There’s a natural fruit spice quality, sea breeze scent and youthful impact from the intensity and use of oak. Delicious, weighty, engaging and fresh on the palate. Flavours mirror the bouquet with a near full-bodied texture, some fine tannins and plenty of acidity for structure and breadth. A long finish, this wine is complex as well as delicious."
