Founder’s Block range is the entry level for the consistent and regional Katnook Estate. Often found at a price under the RRP, they represent top quality, archetypical drinking.
Katnook Estate Founders Block Shiraz, Coonawarra, 2015
Cabernet may be king in Coonawarra, but Shiraz is certainly an elegant prince. Short maturation time in older French and American oak sees this almost as a joven, drink now style. Ash, pepper, licorice, red berries and vanilla essence all on a fairly elegant, fruit forward palate. Soft and spongy front, with a burnt orange citrus acidity and fine tannins to finish. Pleasant drinking to match with bbq beef short rib in bourbon marinade.
