Katnook Odyssey 2003

2003 was another amazing vintage in Coonawarra, and the depth and intensity of flavour and extended oak maturation used to craft this flagship Cabernet will reward those who have resisted temptation to open a bottle until now.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark plum reds with purple red tinges. Nose: A rich & complex expression of ripe fruit & oak matured tones. Dusty mulberry & ripe plum with subtle black olive fruits are enticingly infused with sweet vanilla bean, smoky & roasted mocha oak matured aromas. Palate: Seams of complexity a feature of the palate, rich fruit and cedar oak tones are smoothly combined in this generous & appealing palate structure. Ripe dark berries, hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate from the long oak maturation period. Fine dusty, softly assertive lingering tannins complete the long flavours.
Vineyard Notes
The 2003 Coonawarra was similar to the 2002 vintage, climatically, the season was just below average temperatures and generally dry, yields were again disappointingly low and quality was very good. The combination of very low yields, small berries and a long mild and dry ripening period has produced wines rich in varietal fruit flavours with fine soft tannins.
Winemaker Notes
Maturated for over 3 years in predominantly small oak 225 litre barriques of which approx 60% were new French oak and 25% were new American oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Suggested food accompaniments are red meats, game birds, veal and pork with reductions. Suggested cellaring is medium to long (10 to 20 years).
