Wine Experience "Elegant and silken with wild, dark berry flavours and gentle dried herb notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is structured and graceful with plush fruit and exceptional fruit and tannin integration which lingers in the mouth." (2016 Vintage)
The Winefront "Pretty perfume shows red cherry, raspberry jam, some plummy notes. Fruity as... bright and easy to drink..." (2016 Vintage)
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 the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!
