TASTE
This superb Coonawarra Cabernet sings with ripe blackcurrant, mulberry and mint. Toast and chocolate notes add complexity, while the palate shows developing flavours of cedar, vanilla and berries. Classically proportioned yet full of ripe fruit, this is a compelling example of a great terroir.

PRODUCER

Katnook Estate’s winemaking history stretches back to 1896, when Coonawarra’s second vintage was made in the Katnook woolshed by Scottish immigrant John Riddoch. In 1971, the Yunghanns family purchased Katnook and the first vines were planted soon after, with the first vintages of fruit sold to neighbouring wineries. In 1980, the first wines were made under Katnook Estate label. The multi-award winning Wayne Stehbens has made the wines since that first vintage, possibly making him Australia’s longest serving employed winemaker.

VINEYARD
The grapes come from vines aged between sixteen and thirty-five years, spur pruned with a vertically managed canopy, and planted at 1,450 vines per hectare on classic terra rossa over limestone soil. They were harvested in several passes between late March and early April.

WINERY
The must was fermented for 5-7 days at 22-27oC in stainless steel tanks. before being drained and pressed. The wine was matured for twenty-two months in a combination of French and American barriques, with thirty percent new oak.

PRESS
“Bright hue, especially for ’11; matured for 22 months in 60% French and 40% American oak, which has in no way diminished its varietal expression of cassis, mint and Coonawarra earth; has good length, bolstered by the integrated oak and fine tannins.” – 94 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015
