TASTING NOTES
This Shiraz shows vibrant raspberry fruit framed by subtle oak notes. Liquorice, plum and black pepper develop on the palate, alongside vanilla and chocolate flavours from the barrels. Savoury, spicy notes and a fine structure temper the wine’s inherent fruit richness and lead to an elegant finish.

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 the second half 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 eighteen months in a combination of French and American barriques, with twenty- seven percent new oak.

PRESS
“Deep, bright crimson; restrained and savoury aromas of black fruits, sage and spicy mocha oak; the palate is medium to full bodied, with tightly packed tannins and fresh black fruits, offset by a lingering mocha and floral violet note to conclude.” – 94 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2013
