Fresh and intensely concentrated, this wine can be enjoyed young or cellared for several years.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has a fragrant nose of elderflower, lavender, lemongrass and fresh herbs with hints of struck match and ground stones. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture and great intensity, it has a lively acid backbone and long savory finish.
Kato Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Marlborough, New Zealand, the premier New World growing region for this varietal. The vineyards are located in the Awatere Valley, where coastal influences protect the fruit from sharp morning frosts. The word Kato means “harvest” in Maori, referring to the unique heritage of the region. This 2014 offers aromas of tropical fruit, guava and stone fruit on the nose. On the palate, crisp, fruity and fresh with lively acidity and a refreshing finish.
|Grown on clay soils in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. This soil profile yields a wine with more defined citrus characteristics than the more common gravel soils. Hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed, and then fermented in stainless steel.
