Description

Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow and family matriarch, Catharine Smith. Clonal selection and the use of traditional grape varieties (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) makes this wine a modern Niagara expression of a time honoured wine style. The secondary fermentation is done in bottle and this wine is aged for approximately 30+ months on the lees before disgorging.

Winemaker's Notes

• Made from the blending of 70-80% Chardonnay with 20-30% Pinot Noir;

• Handpicked and bunch selected. Gently whole cluster pressed;

• A small percentage of the Chardonnay is barrel fermented;

• Secondary fermentation in bottle followed by a further 30+ months aging on the lees.

Food Matches

Salmon caviar with sour cream; Malpeque oysters with a hint of lemon. Or add 1 oz of Riesling Icewine or 1 oz of Cabernet Franc Icewine to 3 oz of Cuvée Catharine to make a Kir Catharine or a Blushing Kir Catharine respectively.
