Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Well made, and ticks all the boxes. The choice of 20% new oak (16% French, 4% American) for 15 months maturation gets the wine off to a good start, and the medium-bodied palate carries on the good work. The tannins are notably soft, the oak integrated, black fruits and black olive tying the parcel.
