WHAT: Henry of Pelham Cuvée Catherine Brut (sparkling) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Niagara Peninsula
WHY: It’s hard to say no to Catherine. Her vitality becomes apparent as you get to know her. Her touch is gentle on the finish, and she’s not too yeasty. I defy you to find a more alluring local companion than CC for your countdown.
