Katnook Estate Riesling 6pk 2019
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 Riesling 2019
While far from the archetypal Riesling zone, produces a high quality expression in good hands. Oilier and more viscous than most, the aromas are amplified: lime curd, kerosene and quince, promoted across a beam of freshness as much derived from a skinsy phenolic rail as acidity.
