Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Vintage: Coonawarra received good winter rains, which set up the vines well for the growing season. Temperatures during the growing season were warm with minimal heat spikes, the steady temperatures continued through vintage. There was minimal vintage rains, which reduced any pressure of disease.
Oak Maturation: Selected parcels were aged for 19 months in new and used French oak providing elegant spicy, cedar notes.
Colour: Medium crimson, red hue.
Nose: This expressive cabernet sauvignon shows lovely evocative notes of briar, forest floor and Mediterranean herbs. There is a bright core of fruit aromatics such as mulberry and blueberry.
Palate: The palate is full, supple with lovely flavours of plum, cassis, briar notes which give a lovely umami nuance. The tannins are supple and the finish is long.
Food Matching: This cabernet will go well with French-cut lamb cutlets or for a vegan alternative, try a rich tomato base pasta.
Cellaring Potential: Will age gracefully up to 10 years.
