14 months in a combination of 90% French (mostly older) and 10% in new American oak barriques.
Katnook Estate, Shiraz, Coonawarra, 2015
Cola, clove and nutmeg, followed by small hints of ash/smoke, raspberry, blue plum and sweaty blue meat. Fruit generous palate full of small dark berries supported by firm tannins. American oak creates extra sweetness that distracts slightly. Tangy finish, medium in length. Ready go now for those that like a plush ride.
