    Catalina Sounds is a renowned winery that embarked on its journey in 2005 with a singular vision to craft the finest wines in Marlborough. Named after the majestic Catalina flying boats and the iconic Marlborough Sounds, the winery's offerings truly reflect the region and its vineyard sites, while adding an extra textural dimension that is uniquely Catalina Sounds. The winery has evolved from its humble beginnings and has garnered acclaim for its premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, expanding its repertoire to include new varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Additionally, Catalina Sounds produces a single vineyard range from its estate vineyard Sound of White and a sister brand called Crowded House. The name "Catalina Sounds" pays homage to the Catalina flying boats, which played a vital role in the South Pacific during and after World War II. The winery is accredited with Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, reflecting its commitment to sustainability in winemaking and viticulture. Furthermore, the Appellation Marlborough Wine certification is integral to Catalina Sounds' vision of producing the finest wines from Marlborough serving as a benchmark for protecting provenance and ensuring integrity and quality. Situated in Marlborough, a haven of new world winemaking, Catalina Sounds has established itself as a prominent player in the global wine market particularly renowned for its hallmark style of Sauvignon Blanc characterized by a harmonious balance of lively fruit and distinctive acidity. The Sound of White Vineyard located in the Waihopai Valley, embodies the inspiration for the winery's name offering an awe-inspiring and peaceful setting that influences the creation of compelling, honest and pure wines that distinctly represent the Waihopai Valley. Catalina Sounds' vineyards span the three sub-regions of the Wairau, Southern and Awatere Valleys in Marlborough each characterized by unique soil profiles that contribute to the depth and nuance of the winery's offerings making them truly distinctive to Catalina Sounds.

    Exuding a captivating ruby red hue with a youthful brightness, the 2022 Catalina Sounds Pinot Noir presents a sensory journey of unparalleled depth and complexity. Layered aromas of cassis, earthy spices, black tea, fresh toast and ripe plums tantalize the senses, leading to a palate adorned with finely powdered tannins. Juicy red cherries and fleshy plum textures unfold gracefully, culminating in a long, memorable finish accented by notes of dried cranberry and black tea. This extraordinary Pinot Noir is a testament to the art of winemaking, sourced exclusively from the esteemed Sound of White and Fairhall Downs vineyards in the sought-after Southern Valleys sub-district. Nestled within the Waihopai and Brancott Valleys, these vineyards yield fruit with deeper flavour and intensity, owing to the unique composition of clay, sand and fine gravels in the soil. This terroir imparts a distinctive character to the wine, setting it apart from the typical offerings found across Marlborough's stonier, alluvial soils. For enthusiasts of fine wine, the 2022 Catalina Sounds Pinot Noir promises an indulgent experience that can be savored over the next 5-7 years, provided it is cellared correctly. With its rich, complex flavors and impeccable structure, this vintage invites you to embark on a journey of timeless elegance with each sip.
