Winemaker, Wayne Stehbens, made every single vintage of Katnook up until his passing in 2017; a remarkable achievement. Katnook Estate has three wines in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine.

Press Review

    Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    'Outstanding' Langton's Classification VI (2014)


    Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Crushed and destemmed, cultured yeast, part cold soak, 5-7 days on skins, matured for 24 months in 90% French (46% new) and 10% used American oak. Hyper-intense, full-bodied cabernet varietal fruit is beyond the normal Odyssey style, but none the worse (indeed better) for that; blackcurrant and bay leaf, plus notes of tar, race along the palate, barely checking their momentum on the finish and aftertaste.

    Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    One of the outstanding cabernets of Coonawarra. From selected parcels of cabernet off the terra rossa soils. Gets plenty
    of oak. In fact, 24 months in new and used oak, with a predominance of French but an important inclusion of American.
    Deep and dense but with Coonawarra smooth elegance well to the fore. A wine for extended cellaring.

    Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Deep red with a trace of purple in the rim, the bouquet strong on oak and superripe-fruit, fruit-cake notes, chocolate and vanilla. A full-bodied, densely-structured wine, with concentrated flavour and lots of oak contributing to the rum-and-raisin chocolate, fruitcake flavours. It smells oakier than it tastes. It's very rich and smooth and will appeal to lovers of big reds rather than Coonawarra afficionados.
