Katnook Prodigy 2015
Vintage Conditions: Coonawarra's 2015 vintage was amongst the earliest on record. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced Shiraz fruit in exceptional condition. Katnook Prodigy is created from small parcels of premium Shiraz grapes sourced from sites that have consistently produced fruit with outstanding depth of flavour, excellent colour and firm tannin structures.
Oak Maturation: Matured for 36 months in a combination of 61% French (31% new) and 39 % American (21% new) barriques and hogshead oak barrels.
Colour: Deep plum red with crimson hues.
Nose: An array of ripe plum, raspberry and a hint of spice combined with vanillin oak aromas.
Palate: Complex layers of rich plum and red berries seamlessly integrate with oak maturation notes. Excellent structure and fine grained tannins contribute to a lengthy, lingering finish.
Cellaring Potential: Cellared correctly, Prodigy will age gracefully for up to 20 years.
