Katnook Founder's Block Merlot Coonawarra 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Katnook Founder’s Block wines are named in honour of the original land holding of John Riddoch, the founder of Coonawarra. With Katnook Estate pedigree of ‘Classic Coonawarra’, the Founder’s Block range is styled for everyday drinking, and priced to allow a new generation of wine drinkers to enjoy the pleasures of Coonawarra wine. The wines are grounded in the past but are persuasively focused on the present. They are mellow, fruit forward and harmonious and shining with pure Coonawarra character. This wine is plum red with purple & light garnet tinges. The nose has attractive redcurrant and cherry fruit, are combined with light fresh earthy and mushrooms tones. The oak is subdued, with light smoky and cedary edges. This is a medium bodied wine with a generous palate structure showing savoury cherry and red currant fruit combined with very light dusty oak flavours and fine tannins. An attractive merlot with soft tannins and an appealing lingering fresh finish. Try with a slow roasted beef stew.
