Katnook Founder's Block are named after the original land holding of John Riddoch, founder of the Coonawarra. Fruit is collated from choice Merlot vineyards. The idyllic growing conditions which surround Coonawarra's terra rosa soils translate into full bodied, refreshing red wines of vigour and deep varietal complexion. Charged with the aim of retaining the clear regional characters, the Katnook team endeavours to vinify the grapes as plainly as possible, allowing the rich Merlot fruit to speak for itself. Treated to a minimum exposure under oak, one component is filled to a selection of French and American barriques for a term, contributing subtle complexity.
Plum red, garnet hues. Hints of dark plum fruit, an earthy richness combined with subtle sweet oak with a light char note. Smoothness and subtle richness are a feature of the palate. Generous fruit flavours of dark berries and ripe plums with a hint of spice are combined with gentle, sweet chary oak. Soft fine grained tannins complement the lingering fruit flavours. A superb red wine for all occasions.
