Lisa Perrotti-Brown “Deep garnet-brick in color, the 2002 Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows a wonderfully evolved nose with pronounced earthy and gamey notes allied to a core of creme de cassis, dried mint and a touch of smoked meat. Medium to full-bodied, it has a rich, concentrated palate marked by just a slight herbal lift, crisp acid and medium to firm, grainy tannins. It finishes long.”
Powerful, concentrated and focused black fruits and earth plus touches of bitter chocolate; tannins imposing, but balanced by fruit and oak.
Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.
