Katnook Estate is proud to announce it has won the following awards at Japan's largest international wine competition, the Sakura Wine Awards 2017. This year, 1 500 wines were judged.
Double Gold medals were awarded to Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 and Katnook Estate Chardonnay 2013. Double Gold wines scored between 95-100 points and represent the top 5% of the total entries.
A further gold medal ( those scoring 88-94 points) was won by Katnook Estate Shiraz 2012, which coincidentally was a double gold and regional trophy winner at the same show last year.
Japan is an increasingly important market for Katnook Coonawarra and awards such as this increase the demand for fine wines, particularly in the on premise.
