Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
A richly layered palate of dark berry fruits with well integrated oak maturation flavours of cedar, dark chocolate and spice. A long, lingering finish with soft, fine grained tannins.
Coonawarra's 2016 vintage was an early one. Slightly above average temperatures, dry conditions and cool nights throughout the growing season produced outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with intense colour, powerful flavours and excellent regional expression.
Thirty percent of the final blend spent an average of 17 months maturing in predominantly older French oak, adding complexity and suppleness.
Food Pairing Notes
Beef Wellington with duck fat potatoes, slow cooked lamb shanks or gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce.
Will age gracefully for 15 years.
