With its rich history dating back to 1896 when Coonawarra's 1st vintage was crafted in their Woolshed, Katnook Estate's maritime climate & unique terra rossa or red earth soils are indicative & representative of Coonawarra's wine styles. Their 155 hectare vineyards have Entwine Accreditation which is Australia's official wine environmental assurance program. It lies in one of the only regions of Australia that can genuinely claim the influence of terroir with the unique combination of the area's multi-layered soil with excellent water holding capacity, microclimate, & topography imparting intrinsic qualities to its wines that can't be reproduced anywhere else. With its long, warm summers, cool autumns, & cold winters, the climate of Coonawarra has been compared to that of Bordeaux. This wine displays enticing peach, melon, and citrus characters with subtle vanillin oak & a fresh lingering finish. This wine will make for a great pairing with Roast Chicken, Smoked Salmon Pasta, or Pizza Margherita.
Succulent peach, nectarine, & zesty grapefruit aromas & flavors lend a lovely touch of complexity to this wine with a long lasting finish.
