CLASSIC SAUVIGNON BLANC 2023

SOUND OF WHITE

CLASSIC SAUVIGNON BLANC 2023

A touch of struck match initially, it opens beautifully to reveal guava, crushed passionfruit seed and distinct cool climate herbs. The palate is weighty, balanced texture and a lengthy, savoury finish that is dry and poised finely with Sauvignon Blanc acidity.

Fruit was purposely selected from two blocks at Sound of White. Simply, called ‘D’ and ‘E’ blocks, these are in the southern section of the vineyard where a higher proportion of clay in the soil brings an extra element to the wine. Differing row orientation between North-
South and East-West create variation in fruit ripening and exposure to UV. These are two of our favourite Sauvignon Blanc parcels from Sound of White.

Vintage

The 21/22 season is one for the books. Winter rains replenished parched soils and broke a three-year drought. A warm and wet winter continued into spring, bringing lush growth to the vines, and a perfect flowering. January was warm and dry, and dropping excess fruit was necessary to ensure quality fruit. Our Sound of White vineyard in the Waihopai Valley is elevated above sea level, cooler and drier, and the fruit harvested later than other parts of the region. This is uniquely Catalina Sounds.
