Reviews and Ratings

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Full of pale pink bubbles, this wine has aromas of cranberries and citrus and aftertastes of the same. A lovely bottle to share with friends and family over appetizers for celebrations and holidays.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A pretty salmon colour with lovely persistent mousse. Light enough to enjoy on it's own or enjoy with appetizers, dessert and chocolate dipped strawberries. Refreshing Niagara acidity with plenty of fresh field berries, zest, yeast and minerality. Can you say "Happy Valentine's Day?"
Tasted: January 2016
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fresh wild strawberries, red apple skin, cranberry, lemon/lime, biscuit, and just a touch of hazelnut and smoke. Fine lively bubbles and lots of fresh fruit repeating on the palate, with the toasty notes coming through more, especially on the finish. Excellent length
Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful aromas of strawberry, cranberry and pink grapefruit jump out of the glass. The palate is lively and refreshing with notes of rhubarb pie and cranberry. Enjoy with smoked salmon or butternut squash soup. This is a great introduction to the amazing value sparkling wines being done in Ontario.
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a wonderful celebration wine! A beautiful light coral colour in the glass, with aromas of cranberries, honeydew melon, and a hint of wet stone, consistent and delicate bubbles, toasted almonds and honey in the mouth, and a lasting cranberry finish. A perfect way to kick-off any party!
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A pretty coral sparkler with aromas of cranberries, blood orange, and a little citrus. Fine bubbles on the palate with flavours of tart orange, apple, and lemon. Quite dry, with zippy acidity. Great with salmon, or with a fruit plate for breakfast on a weekend.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Little red berries on the nose with notes of slivered almonds. Nice acidity and plenty of fizziness in the mouth and nice length. This would make a good companion for cocktail parties, but it has enough matter to be served with food. Smoked salmond comes to mind.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Salmon hue with small uniform bubbles, toasty with lees notes on the nose along with light berry and ripe apple and citrus. Medium light bodied, with a palate cleansing fine frothy mousse, good acidity and long finish repeating toasty, leesy notes.
A fine value for traditional method sparkling wine - great for celebrations. 89+
Tasted November 2015
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright red berry aromas on the palate (strawberry, raspberry). Berry flavours come through on the palate with refreshing bubbles. Dry and crisp, a great party sipper, but would also go well with a variety of party appetizers, including oysters, and a wide range of canapes.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Cuvée Catharine Rose Brut is a wonderful traditional method sparkling from Henry of Pelham. Brilliant, pale pink and 12% ABV. Refreshing citrus, lime zest, stone fruit, with prominent minerality. This is a dry wine with mouthwatering acidity. Ready to enjoy with appetizers, on it's own or with a diverse array of food options.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Nice colour, nice bubbles!

Appearance: Pale salmon pink
Nose: orange, nectarine.
Taste: Fine bubbles though a little sharp, herbaceous, flowers.
Finish: herbaceous, long finish.
Overall impression: A nice traditional-style bubbly. It would be good for a special occasion, with its pink colour. Makes for a nice present or host gift.

Value: 3 out of 5
