This wine is a good reflection of the vineyard site - a dry grown, clay vineyard on a steep slope in the upper Omaka Valley - which is a pleasure to make wine from, due to its natural balance and complexity. Wild fermentation, minimal additives and gentle filtration means that what you taste in you glass is as close to the vineyard a wine can be.

Winery Tasting Notes


Bright ruby red.


Vibrant dark plums, cherry and redcurrants, followed by warm spices, hints of worn leather and fragrant toasty oak.


Initial taste is redolent with juicy plums and red fruits, followed closely by darker, more mysterious hints of nutmeg, mushrooms and toast. The palate is silky with great length, good acid balance and well supported by a satisfying tannin structure.

Food Matching

Slow cooked Du puy lentil soup with grilled chorizo, a good slurp of fresh spicy olive oil and a sprinkling of shaved parmesan.

Winery Profile

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. New Zealand’s famous and largest warbird, the Catalina is a rare sight, in fact there are only a handful of these beautiful, iconic planes left in the world today, and we are lucky enough to be associated with one based right here in New Zealand. Through our sponsorship of this rare, passenger carrying, amphibious flying boat we are in some small way helping to ensure the Catalina continues to grace the skies around the stunning Marlborough Sounds and high over the vineyards in the Waihopai Valley where we have made our home.

We draw inspiration for our wines from these graceful, unique flying boats and the respect in which they are held, together with the pristine and awe inspiring environment of the Marlborough Sounds – right on our doorstep. With attention to detail, we strive for our wines to step outside the norm and show individuality and personality, garnering respect wherever they are poured, while harnessing the purity and vibrancy that Marlborough’s climate and landscape are naturally blessed with.

Here at Catalina Sounds Wines we are proud to have an on-going association with the New Zealand Catalina Preservation Society and hope to continue our past sponsorship of the plane at various air shows and events around the country once she is fully restored and back up in our skies in the near future.
