Katnook Estate Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon is one of 53 wines listed in the ‘Outstanding’ category of the Langton’s VI, Classification of Australian Wine.
Katnook Estate creates two Limited Release wines of exceptional quality which embody luxury and refinement. These flagship wines, Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon and Prodigy Shiraz are handcrafted from the vintages where only a superior quality is achieved. Crafted with the most meticulous attention to detail, these wines signify a seamless blend of intense fruit and extended oak maturation.
Coonawarra’s 2012 vintage was excellent with above-average summer temperatures and below-average rainfall for the year. This contributed to earlier ripening and lower yields. Warm and dry conditions leading up to harvest were conducive to one of the earliest vintages on record and Cabernet fruit was picked at optimum condition. Odyssey is created from small parcels of premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from our oldest terra Rossa vineyards and selected for their richness and intense flavours.
Deep plum red with purple hues in the glass. The nose has a complex array of fruit, oak and subtle maturation aromas. An attractive combination of ripe blackberry and plum fruit is interwoven with notes of mocha, vanilla and cedar. Intricate layers of concentrated fruit and oak. Rich dark berry, mulberry and plum fruits with hints of mocha and vanilla are complemented by assertive fine-grained tannins and balanced oak maturation characters. The concentrated flavours of Odyssey will match full-flavoured dishes such as slow-cooked balsamic lamb or homemade pappardelle pasta with a rich duck ragout.
Cellared correctly, Odyssey will age gracefully for up to 20 years.
