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 fifteen and twenty 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 18th and 29th of March.

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- four months in a combination of French and American barriques, with sixty-eight percent new oak.

Taste
The nose shows a rich and complex array of fruit, oak and subtle maturation aromas. Attractive ripe raspberry and plum fruit mingles with sweet anise and licorice spice tones, while vanillin oak and subtle light roast coffee bean add complexity. The opulent palate is richly layered with seamlessly combined ripe fruit and secondary characters; notes of pepper lift the long, satisfying finish.

Press
“Deep garnet colour. Downright seducing aromas of ripe, fresh blackcurrant, cherry pie, eucalyptus and cinnamon. The palate is elegantly structured with a medium+ level of fine tannins and medium to high acidity beneath pure, beautifully conveyed fruit. Well integrated oak. Great balance and a long finish.” – 90 points, The Wine Advocate, May 2009
