Katnook Estate Merlot 2014

Steeped in heritage and tradition, the Katnook Estate range of premium quality, single varietal wines is an expression of the classic and unique characteristics of the Coonawarra wine region.

Matured for 28 months in a combination of French (49%) and American (51%) oak the Katnook Estate Merlot is a full bodied Merlot with deep colour, intense flavours and smooth, lingering tannins. The nose displays a complex array of ripe fruit and oak aromas. Rich savoury plum with hints of chocolate and spice. The palate is richly layered with dark berry fruits, hints of chocolate and vanillin oak and a soft, earthy note. Very fine and smooth tannins add to the mouthfeel.
