Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
2018 was an ideal vintage in Coonawarra. Good rainfall in the leadup to harvest, followed by a warmer and drier season than usual, produced excellent Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with intense colour, rich flavours and great regional expression.
Colour: Dark plum with purple hues.
Nose: A complex array of ripe fruit and oak. Rich dark berry fruits and cassis combined with hints of mint, chocolate, and cedar oak.
Palate: Vibrant layers of cassis, mulberry, and blackberry fruit with subtle hints of sage and herbs. The complex palate is framed with polished, fine-grained tannins, a hallmark of the Coonawarra region.
Food Matching: Rosemary braised lamb shanks, a chargrilled porterhouse with chimichurri sauce or an aged Gruyère cheese.
Cellaring Potential: Will age gracefully for 15 years.
