Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2017

In 1981, decades before Sauvignon Blanc soared in the popularity stakes, Katnook Estate was one of the first to produce this variety.

Katnook bucks the general view that Australian Sauvignon Blanc does not age. Katnook Estate's 1st vintage, 1981, was tasted recently and it was extraordinarily youthful - orange blossom with a touch of minerality and barely a hint of oxidation. With this in mind, current vintages can be cellared for up to 10 years.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2017 was a return to a more traditional Coonawarra vintage with a cool growing season and mild summer. Harvest was later than in previous years, with Sauvignon Blanc fruit showing high natural acidity, rich flavours and excellent varietal definition.
Production Notes
Barrel fermentation of select parcels (21%) in older French oak barriques for seven months adds structure, complexity and texture.
Winemaker Notes
Richly layered fruit and hints of herbaceous notes, balanced by a subtle underlying minerality and a zesty, refreshing finish. Richly layered fruit and hints of herbaceous notes, balanced by a subtle underlying minerality and a zesty, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Sashimi salad with a ponzu dressing, barbecued chilli lime prawns or double baked goats cheese soufflé.
