Catalina Sounds Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Oct-2012
Fruit mainly coming from the company's ‘Serendipity' vineyard in the Waihopi Valley, with some from Paynters Road in the Fairhall-Ben Morven sub-region, plus 5% from the Awatere, fermented with 2% of hand-harvested, WBP, in new oak puncheons to 13.0% alc. and 2.5 g/L rs. Bright, soft straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. The bouquet is softly full and evenly expressed, with harmoniously interwoven and fragrant aromas of pungent passionfruit, exotic tropical fruits, herbs and ripe capsicums. Dry to taste and elegant in size, gentle and ethereal passionfruit flavours subtly grow and fill the palate. The wine has very fine textures, quite smooth and seamless in flow, with very fine acidity adding poise and tension. The flavours move to a soft, dry and long, lingering finish with minerally nuances. This is a seamless and refined Sauvignon Blanc with subtle passionfruit flavours to match fine Asian cuisine over the next 2+ years. 35,000+ cases made. 17.5+/20 Oct 2012 RRP $24.00
