Expert Reviews

Good purple-crimson; the fragrant bouquet leads into an elegant, medium-bodied palate with clear-cut varietal character in the blackcurrant / cassis / mint spectrum, along with a hint of earth. Good mouth feel, length and balance; very impressive at the price. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013

Such a good vintage in Coonawarra. Generous and well-rounded Coonawarra cabernet. Blackberry and dark savoury plum with a leafy overtone on the nose.The palate is deep, richly textured with concentrated intensity carrying through to the finish. Lovely wine for the shorter term.Tremendous value. Cellar: 5 years.

Rating 90 - Ray Jordan, The West Australian, (JUL/2012)

From Australia’s premier red-wine region comes this supple, medium bodied drop. It features the elegant aromas of red berries, violets and hints of mint. Perfect for partnering with pastas, red meats and winter fare laced with spicey flavours. Nick Stock, Madison, Augusug 2012

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep ruby red with purple tinges.


An intense nose of blackcurrant and red fruits with lifted mint characters. The small amount of oak maturation lends deft notes of toast and sweet spice to the fruit aromas.


The well-structured palate expresses sweet berry fruit and light oak flavours. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry characters abound with a hint of regional mint highlighting the lush palate flavours. Fine grained soft tannins add to the attractive lingering fruit.

Food Matching

Try strips of beef, wokfried in blackbean sauce and served with soba noodles and Asian greens as a great accompaniment. This Cabernet would also be superb after dinner with a selection of cheeses including vintage cheddar and rich blue with plum paste and sliced pear, enjoyed with friends.

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.
