Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Katnook Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2018

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 first 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, our current 2018 vintage can be cellered for up to 15 years.

Vegan friendly.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2018 was an ideal vintage in Coonawarra, starting slightly early with good rainfall in the leadup. A warm, dry season resulted in optimal fruit with excellent flavours and varietal definition.
Production Notes
Select parcels were fermented and matured in a combination of new and older French oak barrels for six months to add structure, complexity and texture.
Winemaker Notes
Elegant gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas with hints of lychee and dried herbs. Richly layered palate with subtle herbaceous notes, balanced by underlying minerality with azesty, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pan fried whiting, sashimi or a goat’s cheese soufflé and green salad.
