Catalina Sounds ‘Sounds of White’ Pinot Noir 2017
The Sounds of White Pinot Noir is the top Pinot Noir from Catalina Sounds in Marlborough. And the added effort that goes into making this wine shows with its fine detail plus quality French oak. But this wine is not your typical fruity Marlborough style – there is subtlety, there is detail and even a dark underbelly.
It’s bright to mid cherry in colour and immediately stalky and sappy with some whole bunch influence plus a touch of green herbs all backed by sweet dark cherry fruits. The palate is dry, mid-weight and savoury with crisp acidity driving a long and elegant finish. A very smart Marlborough Pinot.
