There is also a hint of citrus and some passion fruit. producer: Katnook is an aboriginal word meaning “Fat Land”, referring to the rich, red fertile soils known as “Terra Rossa”. Katnook Estate is one of the heroes of Coonawarra - a small, cool climate area in South Australia famed for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It took until 1980 and the arrival of Wayne Stehbens for the wines to be launched under the Katnook label. 31 vintages on, Wayne is still in charge and has built the winery up into one of Australia's most respected wineries, twice winning the Jimmy Watson trophy for best Aussie red. As well as the Bordeaux grapes, Wayne is a master of white wine too and the Sauvignon Blancs are particularly good, with a dry, zesty, minerally style quite unique in Oz.
