Catalina Sounds Sound of White Sauvignon Blanc 2016

NZW001029A

產地:
紐西蘭

產區:
Waihopai Valley, Marlborough

種類:
白葡萄酒

葡萄品種:
Sauvignon Blanc

釀造:
一如以往,葡萄經過簡單的過程,整批葡萄會經壓榨,而萃取出來的果汁會在容量達4000L至5700L的法國木桶內發酵。自2016年開始,此酒亦會經過自然的乳酸發酵程序,令酒的口感添加一份柔順感。香味方面,此酒展現出誘人的熱帶水果香氣,加上部分桃果及柑橘的氣息。當中帶有溫柔的香草與來自法國橡木桶的複雜度作平衡。口感具質感而柔軟,而良好的酸度及木桶的單寧給予了良好的結構。

品酒筆記:
這是一支較成熟,酒體較濃厚的Sauvignon Blanc。有比較多杏脯與蜜桃的香氣,亦有少量柑橘及青草氣息。當中亦帶有木桶陳年的感覺,而當中亦帶有一些豆蔻的感覺。結構完整,此酒誘人而餘韻悠長,收結絲滑。

Winemaking
As always, a very simple process in that the grapes are whole bunch pressed and then the cloudy juice is run to large 4000L and 5700L French oak foudres for uninoculated, warm fermentation. For the first time in 2016, the wine also went through a natural malolactic fermentation, which has given a lovely softness to the palate. Aromatically, the wine displays an alluring amalgam of tropical fruits, stonefruit and citrus notes with gentle herbal elements and French oak complexity in support. The palate is textural and soft, yet still framed with a fi ne acid line and oak tannins to give pleasing firmness.

Tasting Note:
A riper, full-bodied style of sauvignon, more apricot and peach in spectrum than citrus and grass. There is a touch of barrel-aged character, with some nutmeg notes coming through. Nicely constructed, this is an attractive wine with a long creamy finish.
