Katnook Estate Odyssey

"The best selected parcels of small flavour intense Cabernet fruit – from specific vineyard rows planted on rich clay loams over a thick hard layer of limestone – are used for Katnook Estate’s concentrated and powerful Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon. This highly prized Coonawarra wine has emerged as a benchmark ‘essence of Coonawarra’ style with beautifully intense pure blackcurrant aromas, mocha oak complexity and plush chocolaty flavours. After vinification in ‘headed down’ fermenters maturation takes place over approximately 36 to 40 months in 100 % new French oak. Some parcels are “double oaked” to increase flavour complexity. Winemaker Wayne Stehbens describes the overall style as “fruit richness and elegance”. Odyssey has established proven cellaring potential and has a very keen secondary market following."Andrew Caillard MW
