Catalina Sounds Single Vineyard Sound of White Marlborough Chardonnay (2019)

The youthful, subtle 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked in the Waihopai Valley, and fermented and matured in French oak puncheons (15 per cent new). Medium to full-bodied, it shows excellent vigour and delicacy, with strong, citrusy flavours, finely integrated oak, and good acid spine. Likely to be long-lived, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
