Catalina Sounds Chardonnay 2022 (6 Bottles) Marlborough, New Zealand

by Red+White Cellar 0 orders



Straw yellow in colour with pale lime hues, the first swirl brings charming aromas of salted caramel, stone fruit, buttered toast and subtle spices. The flavours are fresh and lively, immediately followed by beautifully soft fruit and creamy texture in the mid-palate. A citric line carries the flavours to a brilliantly long and lingering finish.

Fruit from both vineyards were harvested 10 days apart on the 15th and 25th of March 2022. A hands-off approach is taken and juice is settled for a day without any additions before transferring to a large old-oak cuve for Ra Nui and smaller French oak puncheons for Sound of White. All oak is either 2nd or 3rd fill or older, meaning no new oak, allowing a really pure and unique expression of Chardonnay from Marlborough and Catalina Sounds. This wine is vegan friendly.
