Katnook Founder's Block Merlot 2015
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.
Early to mid-April 2015
Up to 5 years
Coonawarra's 2015 vintage was the earliest on record. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced outstanding fruit in excellent condition and with strong varietal character.
Approximately 20 percent of this wine was matured for an average of two months in a combination of older French and American oak barrels.
Dark berries and spiced plum with hints of subtle sweet oak. 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 herbed lamb cutlets and hearty pasta dishes.
