2017 Cuvée Catharine Estate Blanc de Blancs ‘Carte Blanche’
Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow, and family matriarch, Catharine Smith, 'Carte Blanche' is a 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 54 months on the lees. Look for elegant lemony flavours and aromas of freshly baked bread.
