Katnook Estate Founders Block Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Fresh and tropical fruit driven, this makes for easy drinking when the mercury rises. Pineapple, green melon, gooseberry
and lemon pith. Clean and crisp, it steers away from the grassy and green Sauvignon Blancs which are a turn-off - for me
anyway. Find some sunshine and find some seafood. Drink now

Alluring passionfruit, snow pea and capsicum aromas, crisp tasty palate with great acid balance and a lovely long-lasting
finish. Very drinkable.

Katnook Estate Founders Block Sauvignon Blanc 2017

A zesty, unwooded style with tantalising regional aromas and flavours of gooseberries underscored with floral highlights and a citrus tang. Just delicious served extra chilled with seafood or vegetarian cuisine. 

2017 was a return to a more traditional Coonawarra vintage with a cool growing season and mild summer. Harvest was later than in previous years, with Sauvignon Blanc fruit showing high natural acidity, rich flavours and excellent varietal definition.
Production Notes
Barrel fermentation of select parcels (21%) in older French oak barriques for seven months adds structure, complexity and texture.
Winemaker Notes
Elegant herbaceous and gooseberry and tropical notes with hints of lychee. Richly layered fruit and hints of herbaceous notes, balanced by a subtle underlying minerality and a zesty, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Sashimi salad with a ponzu dressing, barbecued chilli lime prawns or double baked goats cheese soufflé.
