Katnook Founder's Block Chardonnay 6pk 2018
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 Chardonnay 2018
This is the sort of ripe, flaxen and full-bodied Chardonnay that one seldom sees on these shores any more. Think buttered corn brûlee, bees wax and toasted hazelnut, this is hedonism gone wild. And who doesn't dig a little hedonism?
