  • THE BRIEF
  • Vibrant and zesty Sauvignon Blanc that typifies the Marlborough region. A perfect summer drink!

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The fruit for this wine was harvested from the 21st March through to the 5th of April, 2018. The production of Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc has become a very simple exercise – we allow the fruit to tell its story and seek to add extra interest and complexity by incorporating small levels of uninoculated barrel fermentation, hot temperature fermentation and heavy solids’ fermentation, while allowing the finished ferments to sit unsulphured on full lees for as long as possible, to build additional roundness and mouthfeel. The result is a wine that is proudly Marlborough in style, but with a fruit restraint and texture that sets it apart from many of its peers.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    The 2018 wine shows hallmark grapefruit and citrus notes with tropical overtones and some crushed sweet herbs. The palate is textured and juicy with lovely fruit purity, precision and length.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • New Zealand's Catalina water planes (known as flying boats) played a vital role across the South Pacific during and after World War II. Catalina Sounds pays homage to this plane and the beauty of the Marlborough Sounds where it served and made its home. Peter Jackson's aspiration at Catalina Sounds is to continue producing excellent quality wines of beautiful fruit expression, interest, finesse and balance. Striving to create wines of great honesty and integrity that are true to their site, while attempting to incorporate complexity and longevity into the wines.
