Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Coonawarra)
Colour: Dark plum with purple hues.
Nose: A complex array of ripe fruit and oak. Vibrant dark berry fruits and hints of blackcurrant combined with subtle notes of dark chocolate and cedar.
Palate: A richly layered palate of dark berry fruits and well integrated oak maturation flavours of cedar, dark chocolate and spice. The finish is long and lingering with soft, fine grained tannins.
This wine will accompany beautifully a classic lamb roast with all the trimmings, Chinese Char Sui BBQ spare ribs or grilled, stuffed Portobello mushrooms. This wine is also vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Since 1980, Senior Winemaker Wayne Stehbens has passionately crafted the Katnook Estate range from selected distinguished vineyards, with a philosophy that reflects the essence of Coonawarra’s unique terroir.
Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is one of 65 wines listed in the ‘Excellent’ category of the Langton’s VI, Classification of Australian Wine.
The 2013 vintage in Coonawarra was noted for slightly warmer conditions and well below average rainfall especially throughout the later stages of the growing season. This led to an earlier than usual vintage with Cabernet Sauvignon fruit that showed intense colour and excellent fruit concentration.
Maturation for 13 months in 50% French (10% new) and 50% older American oak barriques has added complexity and suppleness. Will age gracefully for 15 years. Winery Notes
