Catalina Sounds Sound of White Classic Sauvignon Blanc 2020 13% 750ml

62% of the blend (both A and E blocks) are fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks to retain aromatics and varietal purity. 30%, from D block is fermented very warm in a large 5700 L French Oak cask, with indigenous yeast that adds complexity and interest to the wine. A small 8% portion is declassified from the barrel ferment programme and added for enhanced texture. The wines rested on lees for almost 10 months before blending and bottling prior to harvest in March 2021.

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.
