Winemakers Note

In 1981, decades before Sauvignon Blanc soared in the popularity stakes, Katnook Estate was one of the first to produce this variety in Australia. A palate of richly layered fruit and cirtus with subtle herbaceous notes the 2019 vintage is perfect to enjoy now or cellar for up to eight years. 20% of the wine was fermented and aged on lees for six months in a combination of new and seasonal French oak barrels to build complexity, texture and mouthfeel.
