Production information

Producer: Katnook Estate

Katnook is an aboriginal word meaning “Fat Land”, referring to the rich, red fertile soils known as “Terra Rossa”. Katnook Estate is one of the heroes of Coonawarra - a small, cool climate area in South Australia famed for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It took until 1980 and the arrival of Wayne Stehbens for the wines to be launched under the Katnook label. 31 vintages on, Wayne is still in charge and has built the winery up into one of Australia's most respected wineries, twice winning the Jimmy Watson trophy for best Aussie red.

Production note

This Cabernet Sauvignon features generous and rich fruit flavours of the vintage with excellent colour and fine tannins. It will be a great drinking wine for all occasions. Made using minimal oak maturation, approximately 25% of the wine was matured in a combination of French and American Barriques, most of which were second use barrels.
