Simon Waghorn, founder, owner and winemaker of Astrolabe sees through all the crazy wines experimented on and produced at Astrolabe. Drawing on his team which includes the famous Jeremy Hyland, a seasoned viticulturist in the NZ wine scene. Sourcing fruit from different parcels, and each fermented individually with indigenous and/or cultured yeasts before blending as one or a single expression. Astrolabe’s wines are always an experiment and an experience in the mouth.
The 2013 Pinot Noir expresses dark cherry, a soft juicy plum character before melting down into a lovely caressing texture of soft cinnamon and cardamom spices. Firm acids excite the palate with a medium plus finish of fresh red fruits and soft spice.
A beautiful match with confits of pork and duck highlighted with berry-based compotes or sauces. Rillettes, terrines are lovely and so are light stews of spicy sausages or fowl. Spiced-up pastas with grilled seafood are good as well. Tandoori Marsala rubbed meats or fish would be excellent with this Pinot.
