TASTE 
This stylish Chardonnay offers subtle peach and nectarine aromas offset by some grapefruit zing and a touch of toast. The palate blends vibrant fruit flavours with an appealing creaminess, finishing on citrus.

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 ten 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 February and early March.

WINERY
The majority of the juice was fermented for three weeks at 12oC in stainless steel tanks. Ten percent was barrel fermented then aged for twelve months on lees.
