Katnook Estate Caledonian Cabernet Shiraz 6pk 2017
Katnook is one of the oldest and most acclaimed producers of fine Coonawarra wine. With a history dating back to 1896, it has estate vineyards in the heart of the famed soils on the Riddoch highway. Winemaker Wayne Stehbens made every single vintage of Katnook up until his passing in 2017; a remarkable achievement. In 2018, a new chapter began with Senior Winemaker Tim Heath building on this legacy and leading Katnook's journey into the future.
Katnook Estate Caledonian Cabernet Shiraz 2017
The Katnook wines have become gentler; effortless; more poised. No longer over extracted and whacked up with a barrage of tannins, oak or otherwise. Rewardingly, there is a strong fealty to the famed terra rossa strip manifest across pliant tannins, bumptious dark to red fruit tones, hints of pencil lead and a ferrous waft across the detailed finish. This savoury red is a real pleasure to drink.
