A fantastic expression of Marlborough, this wine has a wonderful pale lemon colour. The bouquet is fresh pears, pink lady apples, some nectarine and wet stones which leads to the palate where you'll find it to be flinty and textured, interwoven with light tropical fruit and a lingering clean citrus finish.
Serve and enjoy with fresh spring salad with shaved fennel, snow pea shoots and soft goats chevre.

☆☆☆☆ - Winestate Magazine "Fleshy, generous wine, estate grown in the Waihopai Valley (50%) and at other sites in the Wairau Valley, and partly barrel-fermented. Aromatic and sweet-fruited, with a touch of complexity and good acidity and length."
From the Winery
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.
