Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2015

In 1981, decades before Sauvignon Blanc soared in the popularity stakes, our winemaker Wayne Stehbens was one of the first Australians to release the variety under Katnook Estate.   

Katnook bucks the general view that Australian Sauvignon Blanc does not age. Katnook Estate’s first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc, 1981, was tasted recently and it was extraordinarily youthful – orange blossom with a touch of minerality and barely a hint of oxidation. With this in mind, current vintages can be cellared for up to 10 years.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra's 2015 vintage was the earliest on record. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced outstanding fruit harvested at optimal ripeness and flavours.
Production Notes
18% barrel fermentation in mature French oak barriques. A splash of Semillon was added for texture and complexity.
Winemaker Notes
Richly layered fruit and hints of herbaceous notes, balanced by a subtle underlying minerality and a zesty, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Oysters au naturel, crab and prawn risotto and double baked goats cheese soufflé.
