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. Shiraz shines in Coonawarra and the Founder’s Block has a generous depth of ripe flavour, showing varietal red berry fruit qualities with hints of pepper and liquorice. The juicy palate is underscored with gentle sweet vanilla oak and complemented by fine grained tannins.
Ruth says “Raspberry and blackberry, chocolate, black pepper with a subtle vanilla finish. Soft tannins and full bodied.”
