Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra

This superb Coonawarra Cabernet sings with ripe blackcurrant, mulberry and mint. Toast and chocolate notes add complexity, while the palate shows developing flavours of cedar, vanilla and berries. Classically proportioned yet full of ripe fruit, this is a compelling example of a great terroir.

Grape Variety : Cabernet Sauvignon Region : Coonawarra 

Harvest: 07 April - 08 May 2014 

Alc/vol: 13.5% 

Vintage: Coonawarra’s 2014 vintage was one of the latest on record, with a cool, dry ripening season. These optimal conditions delivered rich, full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with intense colour, generous fruit concentration, lingering tannins and excellent regional expression.  

Oak Maturation : Maturation for 17 months in 45% French (9% new) and 55% American oak barrels has added complexity and structure. 

Cellaring Potential : Will age gracefully for 15 years.

Colour : Dark plum with purple hues. 

Nose: A complex array of ripe fruit and oak. Vibrant dark berry fruits and subtle notes of cassis and mint combined with hints of chocolate and cedar. 

Palate: A richly layered palate of dark berry fruits with well integrated oak maturation flavours of cedar, dark chocolate and spice. A long, lingering finish with soft, fine grained tannins. 

Food Matching:   Chargrilled steak with blue cheese sauce, braised Asian style short ribs or pasta with a wild mushroom ragu.
