Astrolabe Province
Dry Riesling


$276.00 per case (12 x 750 ml)
In the province of Marlborough, high sunshine hours are moderated by a mild sea while steep mountains keep moist and chilly winds at bay. A long cool growing season leads to gorgeous flavours.

My goal is to make the Province wines in a classic Marlborough vein, emphasising the varietal intensity created by leafy vineyards, ripe fruit and cool-climate growing. – Simon Waghorn, Winemaker
  • Colour/Appearance Pale lemon
  • Aroma/Bouquet Lemon honey and lemon zest, green apple and light floral notes
  • Palate Light textured, mineral wine, with fresh apple, lemon citrus flavours and a crisp, racy acidity
  • Cellaring This wine is crafted to allow for long and graceful bottle-ageing, and although it is drinking well already, I would expect it to be peaking around 2017
  • Suggested Foods A wine excellent as an aperitif before a meal, but also to partner a wide range of food, from crayfish and scallops through to pork and spicy Asian food
  • Serve Chilled
