2017 Sound of White Sauvignon Blanc, MarlboroughCATSVB17-SW
“Last tasted nearly two years ago. Whole-bunch pressed and fermented in large oak foudres to add both complexity and texture. Rich, creamy, textural wine with capsicum, nectarine and passionfruit flavours gaining extra complexity from nut and ginger lees characters. Still crisp and youthful but showing good integration after a little bottle age.“ - Bob Campbell, 94 pts
“A wine of purity and poise, the elegantly lifted bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, Gala apple, lemon peel and green tea aromas with a touch of oatmeal complexity. The palate offers excellent concentration and focus, backed by firm acidity, leading to a wonderfully long structured finish.” - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, 94 Points

Named after the majestic Catalina flying boats that once flew across the vast Marlborough Sounds, Catalina Sounds produces wines that are unique with minimum intervention and are true to their vineyard sites while capturing the best of the region.
We have evolved from our humble origins, building a reputation for producing premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc throughout the world. Now we are pushing into new varieties such as Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
