Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Marlborough, New Zealand

95 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
4.5 STARS | Michael Cooper

Considered to be one of New Zealand's finest producers, Astrolabe have built their reputation on consistently producing stunning wines. This Marlborough Pinot Noir is no exception - a generous expression with plenty of weight and complexity. The 2017 is a full bodied wine with round, mouthfilling flavours in the plum, brambly fruit and dark cherry spectrum. The oak component integrates nicely with the fruit, and combines well with the silky and linear tannin structure. Highly recommended.

Tasting Notes

The winery writes "A full-bodied wine with round, mouth-filling flavours of plum, brambly fruit, dark cherry and a hint of savoury herbs. The oak integrates nicely with the fruit and the silky and linear tannin structure." 

Cameron Douglas MS writes "Dark cherry, savoury, crumbled stone and dark spices of toasty French oak, complex and intriguing bouquet. Vibrant, fruity, dry, savoury and complex on the palate with flavours of dark berries and plums, firm tannins and vibrant acid line. Delicious, mouthwatering, savoury and varietal. A wine for the cellar but also ready for drinking from 2022 through to 2028+."

Michael Cooper writes "The 2017 vintage was grown in the Southern Valleys (85 per cent) and at Kekerengu (15 per cent), hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques. Bright ruby, it is a powerful, full-bodied red, with strong, plummy,
spicy flavours, an earthy streak, good complexity and a fairly firm finish."
