Profile

The powerful fruit expression is the most recognisable feature of a Marlborough pinot noir. Characteristics of red and black cherry dominate the flavour profile. The Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Noir is made from a variety of pinot noir clones from vines grown across the wider Marlborough wine region: from the Waihopai and Brancott Valleys in the Wairau’s Southern Valleys pinot noir region, further south to the blustery Awatere valley and right down to our most coastal vines, on Marlborough’s southern Kēkerengū Coast.

The wine is a bright deep garnet coloyr with aromas of ripe dark and red cherry, brambly fruits, spice and leather, with a hint of smoky oak.

It's a full-bodied wine with round, mouth-filling flavours of plum, brambly fruit, dark cherry and a hint of savoury herbs. The oak integrates nicely with the fruit and the silky and linear tannin structure.

Critic awards

Youthful, complex savoury spice, plum and dark cherry, layers of fruit and oak and secondary scents from the synergies between these two attributes. Youthful, intense, fresh, varietal and fruity on the palate. Dry with a coarse silk texture, medium+ tannins and plenty of acidity for foundation and straucture. There’s a core of complexity and savory spices leading to a lengthy dry finish. Flavours continue with dark cherry an vanilla, dark rose an baking spice. Youthful and delicious with best drinking from 2025 through 2034.

— 94 points, Cam Douglas MW

The 2020 Marlborough Pinot Noir is a silky, supple little thing, with red apple skins, strawberry, red cherry and hints of exotic spice (sumac, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.) on the palate. The finish is firm and a little chewy (not a pejorative comment), but what this offers is classy and complete.
