Katnook's mature Riesling vines are planted to salubrious Terra rossa soils, sited within the 330 hectares of prime estate vineyards at the heart of the comparatively small and remote Coonawarra region. From here come white wines with distinctive attributes that have contributed to Australia's international reputation. Grapes for Katnook's single varietal wines are specially selected from the older, more distinguished sites. Concentrated flavours, fine balance and integrity of regional and varietal character, are all hallmarks of the Katnook Riesling. Fruit in perfect condition and exhibiting excellent varietal definition, is selectively pruned and picked from the older vines.
Pale straw, citrus hues. Fine aromas, heightened regional expressions of grapefruit and citrus combined with perfumed scents of florals and spice. A zesty array of flavours, grapefruit and lime citrus with subtle florals and supple spice. Generously lively palate with crisp balanced acid and persistent flavours.
