Deep plum red with purple tinges. Enjoy the abundant and appealing dark berry fruits on the nose with ripe plum and hints of dusty mulberry. Subtle oak notes of vanillin complement the charming varietal aromatics. The generously structured palate shows rich fruit and light oak flavours. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry with a hint of regional mint character are highlights within the lush palate. Fine grained and soft tannins add to the lingering and attractive finish.

Katnook Founder's Block Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
More information:

Katnook is an aboriginal word meaning “Fat Land” referring to the rich, red fertile soils known today as “terra rossa”. Katnook Estate’s winemaking history stretches back to 1896, when Coonawarra’s second vintage was made in the Katnook woolshed by Scottish immigrant John Riddoch. This same woolshed today houses Katnook’s oak barrels. To encourage settlement in the far south east of South Australia, Riddoch set up the Coonawarra Fruit Colony at Katnook in a limestone building which still stands today.

In 1971, the Yunghanns family purchased Katnook and the first vines were planted soon after, with the first vintages of fruit sold to neighbouring wineries. In 1980, the first wines were made under Katnook Estate label in the Katnook woolshed just as John Riddoch had done 84 years before.

Katnook Estate’s first winemaker, Wayne Stehbens has continuously made the wines – possibly making him Australia’s longest serving employed winemaker.

Katnook Estate won two Jimmy Watson trophies (in 1987 and 1998) and two major trophies from the UK based 2003 International Wine and Spirit Competition (Best Vintage Red Wine of the Year and Best Australian Red Wine).  

In 2008, Katnook Estate was purchased by the Freixenet Group. Freixenet is proud to carry on the tradition of fine Coonawarra wine, established by John Riddoch at Katnook Estate over a century ago.
