2013 Cuvée Catharine Estate Blanc de Blancs ‘Carte Blanche’
Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow and family matriarch, Catharine Smith. Carte Blanche is the vintage-dated Cuvée Catharine. Entirely estate-grown Chardonnay is hand-picked, then the best of the best juice is isolated, partially barrel fermented and aged for 60 months in the bottle before being disgorged. Look for elegant, lemony flavours and aromas of freshly baked bread.
