Astrolabe Taihoa Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Astrolabe Taihoa Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is lemon gold in colour and displays aromas of fresh-cut passionfruit, lime curd, currant leaf and citrus zest. The palate offers powerful passionfruit, guava and limoncello flavours, and a chalky, mineral texture. This wine will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing.
