Drink Hacker "Great value.....Jackson focuses on restraint, clearly attempting to complement the heavy tropical notes of this sauvignon blancs with minerality..."
Drink Hacker “A bit braver,” [than the previous vintages] says Jackson, who pushed winemaking in a slightly different direction, resulting in some atypical notes of orange and bacon fat, with restrained lychee notes. Strong on the mineral and herbal elements."
Marlborough based award winning winery, Catalina Sounds is known for wines which harness the purity and vibrancy of Marlborough’s climate and landscape. The name Catalina Sounds evolved from the majestic Catalina flying boats that played a vital role across the South Pacific during and after World War II.
Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial scale viticulture began in Marlborough in the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!
