Bob Campbell "Weighty, textural sauvignon blanc with lime, grapefruit, passionfruit, feijoa and lemongrass flavours supported by delicious, mouth-watering acidity. A punchy wine that is classically Marlborough" (2020 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Light, fresh, mouth-watering wine with restrained passionfruit, lemongrass and lime zest. Restrained wine with appealing purity." (2022 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Gently tangy sauvignon blanc with lime zest, passionfruit and peppery capsicum flavours. Subtle fruit sweetness contrasts nicely with the wines grassy character. An ethereal texture adds further appeal." (2019 vintage)

Robert Parker "Pungent hints of green onion appear on the nose of the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, accenting white grapefruit, fig and melon notes. It's medium-bodied, slightly creamy in texture, with a smooth feel, adequate concentration and medium-length finish. Drink it over the next year or two." (2019 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Bright and lemony, set on a light and refreshing frame, with a touch of freshly grated ginger lingering on the finish. Appealingly transparent and intense. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported. — MW" (2018 vintage)

Wine Orbit "Offering outstanding fruit purity and intensity, the wine shows kaffir lime, Granny Smith apple, jalapeno and white floral characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that's pristine and flavoursome. It's fabulously composed and expressed with a lingering delicious finish. At its best: now to 2025." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Peach, apricot and pineapple notes are juicy and refreshing, with spice, lanolin and chamomile aromas lingering on a plump, fleshy frame. Drink now. 34,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. — MW" (2017 vintage)

Marlborough based award-winning winery, Catalina Sounds is known for wines that 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!

The Sauvignon Blanc taste is one of the most identifiable in the world of white wines for a few reasons. First, it always has crisp, high acidity. Second, it has a chemical compound called pyrazine which gives grassy, herbal or bell pepper flavors. When grown in cooler climates or picked early, the herbaceous green character is most prominent. In warmer climates or allowed to hang longer on the vine, the pyrazine character diminishes in favor of riper fruit flavors ranging from grapefruit, to passion fruit and guava.
