Description

Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow, and family matriarch, Catharine Smith, 'Centenary' is the ultimate and rarest vintage expression of Cuvée Catharine. Fruit sourced from our oldest and best estate-grown Chardonnay vineyards is hand-picked, the best of the best juice is isolated, partially barrel fermented and then aged for up to 100 months on the lees (thus the name 'Centenary'). Look for elegant lemony flavours and aromas of freshly baked bread.
