Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow and family matriarch, Catharine  Smith, 'Carte Blanche' is the vintage dated Cuvée Catharine. Estate  grown Chardonnay is hand-picked and the best of the best juice is isolated,  partially barrel fermented and then aged for 54 months in the bottle before post-fermentation before  being disgorged. Look for elegant flavours of lemon curd and aromas of freshly  baked bread.

Food Matches
