Katnook Founder's Block Cabernet Sauvignon 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 Founder's Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Tasting across this lower tier, it is clear what the region does well. And people, it is a no brainer: Cabernet! A phalanx of briary blackcurrant meets a slab of sage-doused tannins, black olive and a whiff of anise. This belies its price and is an extremely solid wine, boasting fealty of place and dutiful complexity.
