Katnook hits the high notes with Opera Australia

As another year of Katnook holding the title of Opera Australia's official wine draws to a close, we are super excited about two events remaining on the Opera 2016 calendar.

Katnook is again proud to support Opera Australia's annual free opera concert held 'under the stars'  for the people of Melbourne to be held on Saturday December 3rd.  Then on New Year's Eve, our wines will be served in the Opera House as lucky guests witness world class fireworks to herald 2017.

OPERA IN THE DOMAIN. DEC. 3RD.
Pack a picnic, gather some friends and hear Lorina Gore, Sian Pendry, Diego Torre and Luke Gabbedy sing some of opera's biggest hits with the Opera Australia Chorus and Orchestra Victoria.

Gates open at 4pm, get there early to nab a good spot.  Performance starts at 7pm - check out the program below. Katnook wines will proudly be served during the VIP interval and post performance party.  For more information, click here.

NEW YEAR'S EVE. 31ST DEC. SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

New Year's Eve is the night when Sydney puts on the bling, kicks up its heels and shows the world what a gorgeous thing it is, as a festival of fire explodes across the midnight sky. 

Ringside seats to the greatest show on earth are hard to come by, but we've saved some great ones, and you're invited.  Leave the crowds behind as you enter the Sydney Opera House.

Be entertained at the Opera Gala, featuring favourites by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and more.

Then, with a heart full of song, watch the fireworks the whole world watches. Interval is timed for the 9pm fireworks and the Sydney Opera House stays open well past the midnight fireworks.

There’s nowhere in the world like Sydney on New Year's Eve and there's nowhere closer to the action than Sydney Opera House. Make this your most glamorous and memorable New Year ever.  BOOK HERE.

Two international medals for Katnook.

Katnook Estate's new release 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (RRP $40) has been awarded an international silver medal in The Drinks Business Global Cabernet Sauvignon Masters which assesses wines purely by grape variety rather than by region.  Winning wines were judged by a cherry-picked group of Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers on 14 April  2016 in London. Divided only by price bracket and, for ease of judging, whether the style was oaked or unoaked, the blind tasting format allowed wines to be assessed without prejudice about their country of origin. Wines were scored out of 100, with those over 85 points being awarded a Silver medal.  

Not to be outdone, the Katnook Founder's Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (RRP $20) scored over 80 points, resulting in a Bronze medal. 

This same wine was awarded 93 points by noted UK wine writer, Sarah Ahmed in 'Decanter' magazine (August 2016) magazine. Ahmed described the wine as " Heady with a rich burnish of charry, spicy oak to its cassis and juicier mulberry and blackberry. Long, with ripe but textural gravelly tannins.
