Katnook Prodigy 2012

Katnook Prodigy 2012

Prodigy Shiraz is crafted from the vintages where superior quality is achieved. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, it is a seamless blend of intense fruit and extended oak maturation. The first vintage of this wine was in 1997 - it won Australia's most prestigious trophy, the Jimmy Watson.

Prodigy Shiraz is one of 65 wines listed in the ‘Excellent’ category of the Langton’s VI, Classification of Australian Wine. The 2012 is the 13th vintage release.

James Halliday rated this wine 96 points describing it as " Prodigy marches to the tune of its own drum, and practice has long since made perfect. Despite all the winemaking, and in particular the time spent in oak, it has retained balance, emerging at the end of the process as elegant, the tannins supple, the wine fresh."

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Above average summer temperatures and below average rainfall lead to low yields and one of the earliest vintages on record. Prodigy is crafted from small parcels of grapes harvested from plots that have consistently produced outstanding Shiraz fruit quality.
Production Notes
This wine matured for 25 months in barriques of which 21% were new French oak, 27% new American and 22% older French oak.
Winemaker Notes
Rich, deep red with raspberry and plum aromas with a touch of spice. Intense, white pepper/plum flavours seamlessly integrated with fine tannins, which are in harmony with the well-rounded palate structure and lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Venison or chargrilled scotch fillet with pepper sauce. Also the perfect accompaniment to a selection of hard cheeses with brioche, paté and quince paste.
