Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay 2018

Marlborough - Aroma - Some ripe melon and dried stone fruits with vanilla and butter notes and a subtle mealiness. Palate - A wine of very elegant texture with stone fruit, vanilla creaminess, pleasing weight and a long, dry and mineral finish.

Region
New Zealand > Marlborough

Alc.: 13 % ABV   |   RS: 1.3 g/l   |   TA: 4.7 g/l

Blend
100% Chardonnay

Vinification
The fruit was hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. Only the free-run juice was used, and this was fermented in French oak puncheons and barriques, using both select and wild yeast. Frequent bâtonnage, full malolactic fermentation and ten months’ barrel maturation have added to the texture and complexity. This wine is unfined.

Grapes were machine harvested in cool conditions, de-stemmed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact.

Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018

Marlborough - Aroma - Citrus peel, poached pear and peach with light spice. Palate - Pure, crisp and dry wine with a fine minerality and delicacy of structure. Pear, quince and peach flavours dominate.

Region
New Zealand > Marlborough

Alc.: 13.5 % ABV   |   RS: 3.2 g/l   |   TA: 6.1 g/l

Blend
100% Pinot Gris

Vinification
Only the highest quality fraction of free-run juice has been used in this pinot gris, with most from whole-cluster pressed hand-picked bunches. This portion has been cool-fermented on light grape solids to add some round texture and flavour complexity. The balance of the wine is from night-time machine harvesting, where clear-settled juice has been fermented at low temperature to enhance aromatic intensity.
