Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily.. The old sheep shearer's shanty»
An Irish cobbler named Reilly settled into the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro circa 1856. He converted a stone barn into a homestead cottage.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Katnook's mature Riesling vines are planted to salubrious Terra rossa soils, sited within the 330 hectares of prime estate vineyards at the heart of the comparatively small and remote Coonawarra region. From here come white wines with distinctive attributes that have contributed to Australia's international reputation. Grapes for Katnook's single varietal wines are specially selected from the older, more distinguished sites. Concentrated flavours, fine balance and integrity of regional and varietal character, are all hallmarks of the Katnook Riesling. Fruit in perfect condition and exhibiting excellent varietal definition, is selectively pruned and picked from the older vines.
Pale straw, citrus hues. Fine aromas, heightened regional expressions of grapefruit and citrus combined with perfumed scents of florals and spice. A zesty array of flavours, grapefruit and lime citrus with subtle florals and supple spice. Generously lively palate with crisp balanced acid and persistent flavours.
