Astrolabe Province Pinot Gris 2016 (Marlborough, New Zealand) "...peach, pear, quince..."
Astrolabe was the name winemaker Simon Waghorn gave his new venture because of its historical links with the Marlborough region and the connotations of exploration and adventure. Their Pinot Gris is a fine aromatic wine focused on minerality and structure rather than overt fruit opulence. This has resulted in classic styled Gris with stone fruit and pears on the palate balanced with fine acidity.
"There's great varietal character in this juicy Pinot Gris with crisp peach and citrus; bright and tangy, long and fresh" - Tasting Panel Magazine
“Light Straw. Pear and quince, light peach and citrus rind and a whiff of cardamom and nougat on the nose. The palate is pure and focussed with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavors dominate, followed by some light citrus.” – wine.com
