TASTING NOTES
A benchmark Australian Merlot, offering a winning combination of generosity, complexity and restraint. Plum and dark berry fruits sit alongside fruitcake richess, subtle earth and vanilla notes, and the spicy forest-floor tones of early maturity.

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 seventeen and thirty-six 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 between the 4th and 9th of 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 oak barriques,with thirty-eight percent new French oak and ten percent new American oak.
