People forget Coonawarra does white wine well…Katnook Estate, part of the greater Wingara Group (who also have Deakin Estate in Australia and the incredibly selling Freixenet Cava) are custodians of some top Coonwarra vineyards.
Katnook Estate, Chardonnay, 2013
Timeless label on the wine. Evocative, classic.
French Oak barrel ferment and maturation breeds nutty, lemon butter and ripe yellow stone fruit.
Elegant sandalwood oak spice and straw.
Grilled peaches and a lovely vanilla tinged fruit sweetness. A hint of struck match smokiness across waxy lemon citrus. Fuller bodied, but never clumsy. Classic style.
