2013 Katnook Founder’s Block Cabernet Sauvignon
About the wine
The Katnook Estate range of premium quality, single varietal wines is an expression of the classic and unique characteristics of the Coonawarra wine region. Katnook Founder’s Block wines are named in honor of the original land holding of John Riddoch, the founder of Coonawarra.
The Founder’s Block range is styled for everyday enjoyment, inviting a modern generation of wine consumers to explore the pleasures of Coonawarra wine. The wines are grounded in the past but genuinely focused on the present. They are honest, fruit driven, harmonious and shine with pure Coonawarra character.
The 2013 vintage was noted for its dry, mild conditions and below average rainfall. These dry conditions continued right through the growing season and produced red wines that have great color and fine tannins.
Approximately 27 percent of this wine was matured for four months in a combination of French and American oak barriques.
A medium bodied wine, expressing rich berry fruit and light oak flavors. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry with subtle regional mint.
