Katnook Estate Founder's Block Merlot 2015

The Katnook Estate Founder’s Block wines are named in honour of the original land holding of John Riddoch, the founder of Coonawarra. The range is styled for everyday enjoyment, inviting wine consumers to explore the pleasures of Coonawarra wine. Deep plum red in colour the Founder's Block Merlot displays aromas of dark berries and spiced plum with hints of subtle sweet oak. The palate is medium bodied with rich dark berries and ripe plum flavours complemented by some spice and earthy notes. The finish is soft and supple with fine, lingering tannins. This is a versatile red wine, fantastic with crispy duck pancakes and hoisin sauce. Also great with herbed lamb cutlets and hearty pasta dishes.
