Katnook Estate Chardonnay 2017

Katnook Estate Chardonnay 2017

2017 was a return to a more traditional Coonawarra vintage with a cool growing season and mild summer. Ideal conditions in the lead up produced outstanding Chardonnay fruit with great flavour and aromatics. Select parcels were fermented and matured in a combination of French (18% new) and older American oak barriques for six months.

Delicious now or cellar for up to 10 years.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A richly layered palate of stone fruit flavours with hints of citrus. Elegant vanillin and oak characters from barrel maturation provide complexity and balance.
Vineyard Notes
Coonawarra's 2016 vintage was amongst the earliest on record. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions in the lead up to harvest produced outstanding Chardonnay fruit with great flavour and aromatics.
Production Notes
Parcels of Chardonnay were fermented and maturated for 14 months in 43% French (13% new) and 57% American (27% new) oak barrels, adding complexity, texture and suppleness. Eight percent of the blend was unoaked.
Food Pairing Notes
Creamy seafood bisque, herb crusted pork chops with roasted apple or gnocchi with brown butter and sage.

Beautifully rich vibrant wine. The wine goes well with anything from a Cheese plate to a Chicken Coq Au Vin.
