Katnook Estate Prodigy Shiraz 2012
Katnook Prodigy Shiraz is one of 65 wines listed in the ‘Excellent’ 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. Prodigy is crafted from small parcels of grapes harvested from sites that have consistently produced fruit with outstanding depth of fruit flavour, excellent colour and firm tannin structures.
Deep plum with crimson and purple hues in the glass. On the nose, there is a complex array of fruit, oak and subtle maturation aromas. An attractive combination of raspberry and plum fruit with hints of liquorice, vanilla and light toast add depth to the fruit aromas. On the palate, we have rich layers of generous fruit and oak. Raspberry and plum fruit with a touch of spice are seamlessly integrated with premium oak. Fine, mouth-filling tannins are in harmony with the well-rounded palate structure and lingering finish. The full flavours of Prodigy will suit rich gamey meats such as venison or chargrilled aged steak with pepper sauce. Also, the perfect accompaniment for a selection of hard cheeses served with brioche, paté and quince paste.
Cellared correctly, Prodigy will age gracefully for 10 to 15 years.
