Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2013 vintage in Coonawarra was slightly warmer and much drier than average. This led to an early vintage with Merlot fruit showing deep colour and excellent fruit concentration.
Production Notes
Maturation for 19 months in 66% French (38% new) and 34% older American oak barriques has added complexity and suppleness.
Winemaker Notes
A richly layered palate of dark plum and cherry with hints of chocolate and vanillin oak combined with a soft, earthy note. Very fine and smooth tannins add to the complexity and mouthfeel.
Food Pairing Notes
Pan seared pork with tarragon, filet minion wrapped with bacon and blue cheese risotto.

Is this the best kept secret in Katnook's range? My wife thinks so and I think she just might be right. ( I know who is in charge ! ) to me it is one of those wines that you can enjoy now but you know is only develop more over the coming years we all know Coonawarra is know for it's Cab Sav but this is right up there with some of the best straight Merlot I have looked at. PS I understand This is one of Wayne's favourites.
