100% Marlborough with approximately 50% from our home Sound of White, Waihopai Valley Vineyard. The balance has come from our favourite grower blocks in Fairhall, Rapaura and Spring Creek.
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. Winery Notes
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. 4 Stars - Winestate Magazine; March/April 2017
