Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris 2021 13.5% 750ml

Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris 2021 13.5% 750ml

This special single vineyard Gris hails from New Zealand’s famous Marlborough wine region. A dry white, it’s full of pure quince, spiced pear, peach and floral flavours that continue to build. Subtle use of oak gives you a layered and well-rounded mouth-feel balanced by fresh acidity and mineral notes. A beautiful drink on its own, otherwise it will make an exceptional partner to Asian cuisine or white poultry dishes.

Expert Review:
Sam Kim- 93 points, Elegant and delightfully inviting, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, Nashi pear, floral and lemon peel aromas. The palate displays excellent fruit purity and focus, combined with refined texture and bright acidity, finishing long and delicate. At its best: now to 2025.

New Zealand's Catalina water planes (known as flying boats) played a vital role across the South Pacific during and after World War II. Catalina Sounds pays homage to this plane and the beauty of the Marlborough Sounds where it served and made its home. Matthew Ward's aspiration at Catalina Sounds is to continue producing excellent quality wines of beautiful fruit expression, interest, finesse and balance. Striving to create wines of great honesty and integrity that are true to their site, while attempting to incorporate complexity and longevity into the wines.
