This Sauvignon Blanc immediately stands out for its vibrant aromas of melon, passionfruit and citrus enhanced by notes of dried herbs typical of Awatere fruit.The palate combines the same elegant fruit flavors with a flintiness and minerality so representative of this terroir. Enjoy this balanced, long-finishing wine now and over the next few years. A versatile food partner, pair with seafood, especially seafood pasta, pork and poultry, vegetable dishes and salads and ethnic cuisine.
Wine maker notes
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. The Kato logo is a representation of three intertwined whale tails and was inspired by the Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand and is a migration route for humpback whales. As a wine company dedicated to sustainable principles in the vineyard we are also concerned with the protection of all natural environments, including the ocean and the creatures in it.

Kato is proud to support the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, the global voice for the protection of whales, dolphins and their environment. Established in 1987, WDCS, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, is the world’s most active charity dedicated to the conservation and welfare of all whales, dolphins and porpoises (also known as cetaceans). WDCS funds field conservation and research projects all over the world including the United States, Colombia, India, West Africa, New Zealand and the South Pacific. An international team of researchers, scientists and conservationists gives the organization a truly global reach. WDCS North America is located in Plymouth, MA. Steeped in history and culture, Plymouth was once home to a whaling port but it is now a hub for whale watching. In a place where Native Americans once feasted on marine mammals, the WDCS and their supporters now work to protect them. WDCS works for the future of whales and dolphins through projects to address threats presented by noise and chemical pollution, net entrapment, trade and captivity and other issues. The group champions whale and dolphin protection through conservation and conducts ongoing research projects to understand species and populations, habitats and migration paths. WDCS seeks to bring about change by raising awareness about cetacean and ocean conservation through whale and dolphin watching programs, educational outreach and an innovative Adopt a Dolphin or Whale program.
