VINTAGE: 2017 WINERY:Katnook estate
COUNTRY: Australia REGION:Coonawarra
Made with minimal oak maturation, 15% of the wine was matured in a combination of French and American Barriques, 30% of which were new. Deep ruby red with opaque tinges in appearance, this wine displays blackcurrant and raspberry aromas with lifted mint characters. The small amount of oak maturation lends subtle notes of toast and sweet spice to the fruit aromas. The intense palate is layered with flavours of berry fruit and light oak. Dark berries, plum and hints of mulberry characters are complemented by classic Coonawarra mint. Fine grained tannins complete this wine.
