Astrolabe Southern Valley Chenin Blanc Sec 2021

Marlborough, New Zealand

93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS

VERY LIMITED STOCKS

The new bottle and livery for this exciting small batch Chenin promises much and the palate delivers with a burst of tangy, medium-dry tropical fruit flavours with an obvious mineral thread and a finish that sings with fresh acidity. Though certainly enjoyable now, this wine will come into its own in 2-3 years when that acidity has settled and the lemon honey aspects of good Chenin Blanc start to shine through. Highly recommended.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker, Simon Waghorn writes "I’ve made this wine dry but with a hint of residual sugar to balance the zippiness from the natural acidity of the fruit. I have preserved the charming fruit flavour by fermenting in neutral stainless vessels. The wine has more retained spritziness from the fermentation, which adds to the vivacity in the glass. It is a great drinking style, ready to go for spring and summer!"

Cameron Douglas MS writes "Fragrant, lifted bouquet of apple and white fleshed fruits, a lees and mineral layer with a white blossom and white peach fragrance. On the palate - off-dry with a whisper of sweetness with contrasting acidity then flavours of pear and apple, citrus pith and a moment of dried herb. Youthful, tense and salivating on the palate with a light saline wash on the finish. Well made, youthful and ready from drinking from mid to late 2022 through 2030+."
