Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery Cuvée Catharine Rosé Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Description Grapes were hand picked and bunch selected. Gentle whole cluster pressing followed. A wine with brightness, acidity, fine floral aromas and fruit aromas of apple, citrus and apricot by the Chardonnay with notes of strawberry and blackberry along with a delicious roundness on the palate from the Pinot Noir. Secondary fermentation was finished in bottle followed by a further 30 months aging on the lees. Able to develop for 2-3 years but intended for drinking upon release. Winemaker's Notes Made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Food Matches Salmon caviar with sour cream; Malpeque oysters with a hint of lemon.

Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery is a premium estate winery located on the Short Hills Bench at the base of the Niagara Escarpment (a United Nations biosphere) in St. Catharines, Ontario. Owned and operated by the Speck family since 1988, the land was first deeded to our great, great, great grandfather, Nicholas Smith, in 1794. Nicholas fought with Butler’s Rangers in the American Revolutionary war. His youngest son Henry of Pelham built the building that houses our wine store and hospitality rooms. Henry built the former carriage house in 1842. He signed his name Henry of Pelham recognizing Pelham road as one of the main through fares in Niagara. With the premise that fine wine is grown and not made, we take low yields and tend our 170-acre estate vineyards with meticulous care. Only small volumes of handmade wines are produced to ensure the highest standards of quality. Every vintage of Henry of Pelham wine receives the VQA stamp of approval. Our dedication to high quality has been rewarded with many domestic and international awards. "As a family owned and operated winery we are dedicated to producing wines grown from the distinctive soils and climate of the Niagara Peninsula and most specifically the famous and well regarded Short Hills Bench. We are fiercely committed to consistently growing and making only the finest wines by focusing on constant improvements in our vineyards and winery, low yields and wines that have true elegance, finesse and age ability."
