From the Short Hills Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region, Henry of Pelham Cuvée Catharine Carte Blanche Estate 2017 is a traditional method Blanc de Blanc with a creamy and rich mousse of ripe apple, pear, lemon cream, dried quince, baked goods and briny mineral flavours, elegant, crisp and mouth-watering on the palate. It is gorgeous! Produced from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay from the Short Hills Bench, this bubbly is fermented partially (20%) in barrel and then aged 54 months on its lees. Drink or hold to 2028.

Blanc De Blancs food pairings: shellfish, fried foods, Asian fusion dishes, salad.
