Winemaker, Wayne Stehbens, made every single vintage of Katnook up until his passing in 2017; a remarkable achievement. Katnook Estate has two wines in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine (VII 2018).

Press Review

    Katnook Prodigy Shiraz 2012

    Crushed and destemmed, cultured yeast, 5-10 days on skins, matured for 25 months in 43% French (21% new) and 57% American barriques (27% new). Has retained very good hue; Prodigy marches to the tune of its own drum, and practice has long since made perfect. Despite all the winemaking, and in particular the time spent in oak, it has retained balance, emerging at the end of the process as elegant; the fruit is of high quality ex the vineyard, and no less ex the bottle, the tannins supple, the wine fresh. The high quality cork has been perfectly inserted.

     Katnook Prodigy Shiraz 2012

    The clever use of oak, both new and used French and American for an extended period, is a feature of this style. Of course, it’s based on super-concentrated Coonawarra fruit that laps up this sort of treatment. Rich, opulent and powerful but with a stylishness you expect from this region. Intense spice and licorice complementing the dark chocolatey, ripe dark-plum and blackberry fruit flavours.
