Catalina Sounds Sound of White Single Vineyard Barrel-Fermented Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2019)

Drinking well now, but also well worth cellaring, the 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Waihopai Valley, hand-picked, and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with deep, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, finely integrated oak adding richness and complexity, fresh acidity and a long, harmonious finish.
