TASTE
This elegant Sauvignon shows fresh herbaceous aromas with light tropical tones, alongside hints of lemongrass and citrus. The palate is subtly mouthfilling, with refreshing flavours of gooseberry and citrus zest.

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 mid-March.

WINERY
The juice was fermented for three weeks at 12oC in stainless steel tanks. The wine was bottled without oak or malolactic influence to ensure maximum freshness.
