4.5 STARS | Michael Cooper
Long considered one of New Zealand's finest wine producers, Astrolabe has developed a reputation most of the other premium Sauvignon players would give their right arm for. As expected, the 2020 vintage is yet another beauty. This wine is simply as good as Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc gets. Ethereal. Balanced. Simply divine. Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
Michael Cooper writes The 2020 vintage is a regional blend, grown mostly in the Awatere valley, with smaller parcels from Kekerengu, the Wairau Valley and the Southern Valleys. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and full-bodied, with tropical-fruit and herbaceous fllavours, showing very good intensity, and a fully dry finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Classic bouquet and palate with flavours of tropical fruits and apple, lemon pith and peach tea, fresh herbs of sage and basil. The core of fruit and minerality are accentuated by sweet acidity and its palate refreshing qualities. Well made, lengthy, harmonious and ready. Best drinking from today and through 2025+."

Hands down one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I've ever had!
Wish I could give it more stars
