Astrolabe Grovetown Spatlese Riesling 2020

Marlborough, New Zealand

94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS

While Astrolabe are famous for their iconic Sauv Blanc, there's a lot to love in the rest of their range, particularly this gorgeous riesling. Spatlese means 'late harvest' in German which makes this a slightly sweeter style and we absoluetely adore it. It's vibrant, lively and loaded with zesty lemon and lime flavours. It's perfectly balanced with excellent palate weight and texture. And if that's not enough, Astrolabe have just rebranded their labels and we think they're absolutely stunning. Believe the hype.

Tasting Notes

Cameron Douglas MS writes "Ripe fruited and highly scented bouquet with aromas of green apples and roses, honeysuckle and sweet apricot flesh with a flinty mineral core. Equally complex and exotic on the palate with plenty of sweetness contrasted by high-toned electric acidity carrying all the richness and flavour. As the sweetness subsides flavours of apples and white flesh stone fruits, an abundance of lemon and roses return. Long finish, balanced and well made. Delicious with gently spiced fare or just on its own."

Bob Campbell MW writes "Moderately sweet riesling with apricot, honey, lemon blossom and tree-ripened Royal Gala apple flavours. An initial impression of sweetness is moderated by crisp acidity that introduces some pleasing tension into the wine."

The winery writes "Round, juicy palate with flavours of ripe limes and lemonade, sherbet and sweet apple, with some honeyed notes and a clean finish."
