2 x Catalina Sounds 'The Sound Of White' Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Awarded 94/100 Points & 5 Stars: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

Awarded 94/100 Points & 4.5 STARS: Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Feb 2020

Awarded 4 Stars: Winestate Magazine, Jun 2018

The wine displays an intriguing nose with a smoky oak lift, and a complex yet restrained array of tropical fruits, stonefruit and citrus notes with an undercurrent of gentle herbal elements. The palate is textural and soft, yet still framed with a fine acid line giving a precise drive and flavour length.

100% Marlborough, sourced exclusively from the Waihopai Valley ‘Sound of White’ vineyard. Impeccably managed by Fraser Brown, fruit for this wine was again sourced from within our 3.1Ha ‘D’ Block at Sound of White Vineyard. This block has a strong clay presence which provides an inherent richness and density to the fruit. We also note a strong site specific aromatic profile from this block which presents as gentle alpine herbs and a mouth watering saline character on the palate.

Alc: 12.6%

2 x Catalina Sounds 'The Sound Of White' Marlborough Chardonnay 2017

Awarded 91/100 Points & 4 Stars: Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2019

Awarded 4.5 Stars: Michael Cooper, Listener Jul 2019

"Fresh, tangy and quite delicate chardonnay with green apple, Granny Smith, grapefruit and a suggestion of nut and ginger yeast lees character. A fruit-focused wine with nicely integrated oak and a silken texture" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2019

The wine is concentrated with lifted honeysuckle, citrus and nectarine notes. The palate has a lovely creamy softness yet is still framed with a fine acid line and oak tannins to give pleasing firmness, precision and length.

Alc: 13.1%

2 x Catalina Sounds 'The Sound Of White' Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Wild forest berries, cherry and raspberry notes leap from the glass with transparency and clarity. The palate is silken and elegant, with the powerful fruit notes framed by ripe tannins and oak structure, leading to a very long, sustained finish.

Sourced from the Eastern half of the scattered clone, Pinot Noir block at Sound of White vineyard. This site is ideally situated being a north facing hillside with heavy, clay-rich soils. In 2016, it was spur pruned and cropped at 6.5T/Ha. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking and green harvesting were all employed to ensure fruit was at its optimum when hand harvested on March 23rd 2016.

Alc: 13%
