Catalina Sounds Sound of White Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Marlborough
Vintage: 2019

The 2019 growing season wrapped up with exceptionally clean fruit and low yields that developed excellent concentration and flavour. January through March was hot and dry with little rainfall and combined with the low yields, meant harvest started earlier than usual. It also allowed picking decisions to be made in the vineyard on flavour and reaching optimum ripeness. Gentle approach to wine-making brings a different expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine shows reserved aromas of ripe citrus peel, stonefruit, lanolin and flint. The mid-palate is finely textured with mouthwatering acidity supporting the wine to give it definition, length and flavour.

Awards:
  • ANGUS HUGHSON : 93 Points
    Super wine this and a great example of how well handed oak treatment can add so much interest to sauvignon blanc. You can see plenty of winemaking effort as it opens up with guava and floral aromatics well supported by powerful oatmeal barrel ferment and vanilla bean oak. There is plenty of oak here but it sits nicely in the wine. The palate is then dry and rich – exotic tropical fruits and oak again giving great impact which is then lifted by touches of leesy gunflint. It’s a serious food wine too for fancy veal or scallops.
