Catalina Sounds Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tasting Notes
Catalina Sounds Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is aromatically complex, maintaining the Catalina house style of delivering a textured and rich palate balanced with fruit precision and focus. Aromatically, the wine displays a smoky lift complemented with attractive grapefruit and citrus, crushed herbs and tropical notes with a perfectly balanced and cleansing palate of formidable line and length.

Review
2017 - "High toned floral and citrus perfume, touches of grassiness and a puff of talc. Tart and lean, zingy and fresh, very racy, very citrusy too. Runs fast and bright in the palate, finishes with pleasing bitter-sour, almost tonic water character. Good drinking."
90 Points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018, Drink: 2018 - 2020

100% Marlborough with components from grower vineyards in the Bells Rd, Fairhall, Rapaura, and Renwick sub regions of the Wairau Valley. The balance and backbone of the wine, as always, comes from our home Sound of White Waihopai Valley Vineyard.

Similar to 2017 in that a fantastic dry and warm start to the season was met with some indifferent wet weather close to harvest, requiring quick decision making to ensure fruit was harvested in good condition. The terrific start to the season and hot Summer ensured flavours and aromas were nevertheless very strong. The Catalina Sounds Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018 shows hallmark grapefruit and citrus notes with tropical overtones and some crushed sweet herbs, while the palate is textured and juicy with lovely fruit purity, precision and length.

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 un-inoculated barrel fermentation, hot temperature fermentation and heavy solids’ fermentation, while allowing the finished ferments to sit un-sulphured 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. Winery Notes
