CATALINA SOUNDS SAUVIGNON BLANC
Fruit was harvested when ripe from our estate and grower vineyards in the cooler part of the day. All the fruit was harvested between the 12th of March and the 10th of April. After pressing the juice was fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel (97%) and a small (3%) portion from our estate in large oak cuvee. All of our vineyards are kept as separate as possible until blending. Post-ferment the wines were left on yeast lees for a touch of added texture before blending and bottling in July 2021.
The wine has subtle alpine herb notes, overlayed with ripe citrus fruit and touches of minerality. The palate is creamy initially, with focussed mid-palate fruit weight and texture. The naturally lower acidity from the 2021 vintage supports expressive and balanced flavours through to a refreshing and lasting finish. Restrained initially, the wine will open up with time in the glass – discover more depth and interest with each sip.
