Stunning, benchmark New World Sauvignon
When the NZ 20% was available, it seemed a good idea to reach out of the usuall price-bracket and pull in some better quality wines that, after discount, would be pricily affordable!
Thus came the Astrolabe into our universe.
'Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken'
Steely-sharp attack, softening in the mouth to a roundness dominated by citrus and finishing with passionfruit and lychees. Outstanding as an aperitif, but at its best with a simple grilled Dover Sole or a pan-fried fillet of John Dory - anything without a sauce. Hmmm, now I wonder about putting it with lobster., No, just too ostentatious.
Would we buy it at the full price of £20?
