Our Sauvignon Blanc style is complex yet clean, fresh and aromatic. In the winery we aim to release the classic varietal tropical notes, as well as citrus and a touch of Marlborough herbaciousness, while ensuring these characters remain in balance with each other.

To enhance the textural elements of Sauvignon Blanc we ferment a small percentage of the final blend in French Oak barrels, and also use post-fermentation yeast lees to build texture and mouthfeel. The wine is made to be drunk young, but has the ability to last and develop further complexity over the years.

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale lemon


Subtle floral notes mingle elegantly with citrus zest, creamy lemon curd and fresh Asian herbs.


A textural long palate, with bright tropical and citrus notes, with a fine minerality and long balanced acidity which carries the flavours right to the end of the palate.

Food Matching

Crayfish linguini with white wine and cream garnished with tarragon. Feel free to substitute any the crayfish for any fresh seafood - scallops or prawns make an

equally delicious and textural match for our Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
