...Astrolabe is one of New Zealand’s leading producers of Sauvignon Blanc and this wine is no exception. Powerful and complex, with intense aromas and flavours of passion fruit, gooseberries and freshly cut herbs. Refreshing acidity and a long finish. Made to drink now. Score: 91 (Janet Dorozynski, www.WineAlign.com, May 2012)

Our current 'Go To' SB...love the bright citrus impact and balanced finish. Our friends fly through this stuff when served poolside.

Update: Whitehaven (278556) is now our new 'Go To' NZ SB now that local Astrolabe stocks are dwindling.
