Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (Marlborough)

Tasting Notes
Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2016 is complex yet clean, fresh and aromatic. In the winery we aim to release the classic varietal tropical notes, as well as citrus and a touch of Marlborough herbaciousness, while ensuring these characters remain in balance with each other.

To enhance the textural elements of Sauvignon Blanc we ferment a small percentage of the final blend in French Oak barrels, and also use post-fermentation yeast lees to build texture and mouthfeel. The wine is made to be drunk young, but has the ability to last and develop further complexity over the years.

100% Marlborough fruit with approximately 50% from our home Sound of White, Waihopai Valley Vineyard. The balance has come from our favourite grower blocks in Fairhall, Rapaura and Spring Creek.

The 2015/16 growing season was again warm and dry with ideal flowering conditions through late November and December 2015. As a result, potential vineyard yields were higher than average and necessitated plenty of work through the second half of the growing season to bring the vines back into balance and ensure fruit ripening in a timely fashion.

Fruit that went into the Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2016 wine was harvested in a relatively brief 10 day window from April 1st 2016. As always with Catalina Sounds, we have allowed the fruit to tell its story and added extra layers of interest via a small amount of oak fermentation, extended aging (unsulphured) on yeast lees post ferment, and for the first time trialled ‘full solids’ tank ferments to provide an additional dimension both aromatically and texturally. The result is a wine with a punchier nose than preceding years whilst maintaining the Catalina house style of delivering a textured and rich palate balanced with fruit precision and focus. Aromatically, the wine displays attractive grapefruit and white currant notes, with tropical fruits and crushed herbs in support and a perfectly balanced palate finishing refreshingly long and mouth watering.
