Expert Reviews

Eighty per cent of the wine completed fermentation in barriques, 30% of which were new, and predominantly French. The wine spent 19 months on lees during which time a small amount went through mlf. The outcome is excellent flavour and textural balance, and an overarching elegance. Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2012

Winery Tasting Notes


Light brilliant gold with light green tinted edges.


A complex and harmonious nose combining attractive peach,nectarine and hints of grapefruit with well integrated barrel maturation

characters of vanilla, toast, marzipan and a gentle butterscotch note.


A richly layered palate structure, appealing fruit of peach and nectarine, melon and citrus notes are combined with subtle oak flavours. Sweet vanillin and creamy barrel fermentation characters highlight the light toast notes. The oak flavours and hints of buttery malolactic are in fine balance with the long lingering fruit flavours.

Cellaring Potential

This wine will age gracefully for many years.

Food Matching

This refreshing and elegant wine will suit a platter of salmon gravlax served with a light oil and caper vinaigrette. Try also with baked chicken breast filled with toasted macadamia pieces and soft cheese.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Katnook Estate is one of the premier wineries in Australia's pre eminent red wine district, Coonawarra. Katnook Estate wines are made from select grapes grown in distinguished sites within the company's 330 hectares of Coonawarra vineyards.

Since 1980,  senior winemaker, Wayne Stehbens has crafted Katnook Estate wines and more recently, the iconic Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon and Prodigy Shiraz.   

The Coonawarra wine region, Australia's "other red centre" is recognised world wide as producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as stylish Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Currently, over 5500 hectares are under vine in Coonawarra - with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz accounting for 80% of plantings. 25% of wine produced in Coonawarra is exported.

The wines are shaped by the extraordinary terroir of Coonawarra - where the fabled Terra Rossa soils and cool maritime climate create the perfect wine grape growing environment.


Coonawarra's is famous for its prized Terra Rossa ( "Red Earth") soil. This rich, friable red loam vary from a few centimetres to a metre in depth and lie over a thin layer of calcareous matter, which in turn overlays a deep stratum of limestone. The cigar-shaped strip of Terra Rossa soil is only 12 km long and 2 km wide.  

Coonawarra appears completely flat, but in fact the red soil is situated on a slight but all important limestone ridge. The Terra Rossa soils are considered the best in the world for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.


Coonawarra is a cool wine region, with similar climatic conditions to Bordeaux, France. Both areas experience long but cool hours of sunshine during grape ripening - encouraging intense flavours balanced by good, natural acid.
