Sweet Catherine Sauterne Style Wine

Sweet Catherine (Sauterne Style Wine) Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: The Sweet Catherine is our first late harvest style wine, profiled after classic French Sauternes. The wine is named after my daughter Catherine and if there was ever a wine to describe her, it is definitely “Sweet Catherine”. This is a classic Sauterne wine with a backbone of acid, lush mouth of honey and apricot, and sweet on the finish. The viscosity of the wine is very reminiscent of a fine Sauterne wine, one of the profiles we were trying to attain in making this wine

Varietal Definition
Sauterne is an intentional misspelling of the name of the famed wine region Sauternes. The term is typically used on low-quality wines produced in the U.S. from native grapes. Completely unlike Sauternes, it can be either white or pink, and ranges from nearly dry to sweet.
