Katnook Founder's Block 2011 Shiraz
Laden with raspberry and plum fruits with pepper and spice overtones. The gentle oak flavours of sweet vanilla add complexity and depth.

Very impressive value from a historic winery in the heart of Australia’s Coonawarra region. With 6 years of maturation the wine is silky smooth and drinking wonderfully.
The nose is warming, slightly stewed and savoury. Eucalyptus, pain grille, brioche, mulled cherry, glazed ham and blackberries are a few of the wafting aroma’s.
This is a wine that keeps on giving and is best enjoyed slowly and with simple fare and pleasurable company.
Super soft, silky, ultra sheen and a glass filled with warm cherries, brown butter and pie crust. The deeply concentrated palate has a touch of spice and hint of plum. The tannins are narry a pinch astringent rather they are soothing and melted.A long finish and giving style make this an impressive value.
Great with a rack of lamb or simple charcuterie and cheese.
