Founder's Block Merlot 2014
Merlot in Coonawarra offers richness of plum and berry flavour. Katnook loves making Merlot as a single varietal as it shines both when enjoyed on its own and with fine cuisine.
March - April 2014
Enjoy now or will cellar well up to five years.
The 2014 vintage was noted for its dry, mild conditions and below average rainfall. These dry conditions continued right through the growing season and produced red wines that have great colour and fine tannins.
Approximately 53 percent of this wine was matured in French oak barriques and 19% in American oak barriques for ten months.
A medium bodied wine with rich dark berries and ripe plum complemented by some spice and earthy notes. Soft and supple with fine, lingering tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
A versatile wine, fantastic with crispy duck pancakes and hoisin sauce. Also great with grilled, herbed lamb cutlets and hearty pasta dishes.
