KE Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

KE Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Our best known wine is listed in the 'Excellent' category of Australia's prestigious Langton's Classification, which says of the style, 'Katnook Cabernet Sauvignon reflects its strong Coonawarra provenance with plenty of intense blackcurrant mulberry fruit definition, mid palate richness, finely grained tannins and excellent flavour length. The wines have medium to long term cellaring potential.

Rated 94 points by James Halliday.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra’s 2012 vintage was warmer and drier than usual giving rise to one of the earliest starts on record. The warm, dry conditions accelerated development producing fruit in excellent condition at optimum maturity.
Production Notes
Maturation for 16 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barriques has added complexity and suppleness to the wine.
Winemaker Notes
A richly layered palate of dark berry fruits and subtle oak maturation flavours, including mocha and spice. Rich plum and light mulberry highlight the toasty oak flavours and dark chocolate tones. Robust tannins lead to a long, rewarding finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast leg of lamb with herb crust, rib eye steak with red-wine jus or smoked duck and wild mushroom fettuccine.

Yet another fantastic Cab Sav from Katnook. I was lucky enough to taste the 2003 recently at the cellar door and it was looking fantastic. These wines will easily be drinking well in their recommended Windows and beyond. Make sure you get at least half a dozen form your cellar and sample them from 5-8 years on.
