Reviews and Ratings

Dyanne rated this wine as 20/100 with the following review:

Second test entry
This must be Astrolabe’s best Sauvignon Blanc to date – it’s certainly a long way ahead of the 2008. A mix of Awatere with Wairau Valley fruit it’s a very powerful statement about the Marlborough style. Concentrated wine with a mix of passion fruit, mineral and tomato leaf flavours. Impeccably balanced and with a lingering finish that won’t quit. Score: 95 Source: Bob Campbell, MW, bobswinereviews.com

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
