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 Catalina Sounds are lucky enough to be associated with one based right here in New Zealand. Through their sponsorship of this rare, passenger carrying, amphibious flying boat they 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 Catalina Sounds have made their home.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep garnet red.
An enticing mix of red and dark berry fruits, spice and underlying savoury notes.
Approachable, generous and flavoursome with a silken elegance. Berry fruits come to the fore with gentle dried herb notes in the background. Medium bodied, the palate is finely structured with lovely soft lingering tannins which integrate perfectly with the soft supportive acid and plush fruit.
Match with lamb, pork or poultry dishes.
