  • Katnook is one of the oldest and most acclaimed producers of fine Coonawarra wine. With a history dating back to 1896, it has estate vineyards in the heart of the famed soils on the Riddoch highway. Winemaker, Wayne Stehbens, made every single vintage of Katnook up until his passing in 2017; a remarkable achievement.

    The Founder’s Block range is styled for everyday enjoyment, inviting a modern generation of wine consumers to explore the pleasures of Coonawarra wine. The wines are grounded in the past but genuinely focused on the present. They are honest, fruit driven, harmonious and shine with pure Coonawarra character.


    Coonawarra's 2016 vintage was an early one. An ideal growing season of slightly above average temperatures and dry conditions produced outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon harvested at optimum maturity.

    Approximately 10% of this wine was matured for an average of six weeks in a combination of older French and American oak barrels.

    Attractive aromas of blackcurrant, ripe plum and subtle hints of mint, chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, expressing rich dark berry fruit, sweet spice and light oak characters.
