Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2020
New Zealand / Marlborough
Andy's Tasting Notes
This is brilliant! Gorgeous tropical and citrus fruit with superb concentration, yet it’s the restrained minerality and juicy acidity which keep this lovely example on the right side of freshness and balance. A proper NZ Sauvignon Blanc, with a regal and refined pedigree.
Producer notes – production: Grapes harvested from various regions throughout Marlbourgh – 75% Southern Valleys, 20% Renwick, 5% Lower Wairau. A drought summer for Marlborough resulted in low crops and fruit with excellent concentration of flavour. Predominantly sourced from our home Sound of White vineyard in Marlborough’s Waihopai Valley, supplemented with our best grower parcels from Ben Morven, Renwick, Rapaura and the Upper Awatere Valley. Harvest took place between late March and early April.
Since 2005 Catalina Sounds has had a singular vision to produce the best wines in Marlborough. Named after the majestic Catalina flying boats that once flew across the vast Marlborough Sounds. Catalina Sounds produce wines that are unique with minimum intervention and are true to their vineyard sites while capturing the best of the region.
