Katnook Founders Block Pinot Chardonnay Brut NV
Katnook can trace its heritage in Coonawarra all the way back to 1895 but finally hit its straps in the 1980s with its first commercial vintage. In both eras, the wine was made in Katnook’s woolshed, which between times had reverted back to use as a sheep station, so a more Aussie drop is hard to imagine. Katnook Founders Block Pinot Chardonnay is an exceptionally well-balanced and well-made sparkling wine and cracking value for money.
This winning blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, Founder’s Block is a soft blush pink in colour and displays an enticing bouquet of quince, honeysuckle, peach and vanilla sponge. On the palate, luscious notes of strawberry shortcake, almond meal and creamy nougat are woven around a bright, taut acid core that lifts into a lively, sustained finish.
