Pale in color. Lots of green grass on the nose. On the mid pallet are lovely green grass and tar flavors. The finish is on the medium side with the tartness lingering nicely. I would give this an 88 or so. A nice varietal sauv blanc. One dominated by tartness.

Astrolabe left an impression during the 2010 Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival and has found a receptive Canadian audience. Expressive aromas of guava, passion fruit, capsicum, honey and white grapefruit with typical sweaty undertones. A rich, creamy texture offers additional complexity and the very lengthy, mouth watering finish trails spicy, zesty flavours. Score – 4 1/2 Stars (out of 5). (Daenna Van Mulligen, Vines, Oct. 2011)
