Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (1500 mL)
The 2013 vintage in Coonawarra was noted for slightly warmer conditions and well below average rainfall especially throughout the later stages of the growing season. This led to an earlier than usual vintage with Cabernet Sauvignon fruit that showed intense colour and excellent fruit concentration. The wine is dark plum with purple hues. A complex array of ripe fruit and oak dominate the nose. Vibrant dark berry fruits and hints of blackcurrant combined with subtle notes of dark chocolate and cedar are also evident. A richly layered palate of dark berry fruits and well integrated oak maturation flavours of cedar, dark chocolate and spice. The finish is long and lingering with soft, fine grained tannins.

This year, Katnook Estate celebrated the 20th vintage release of its flagship wine with the 2013 Katnook Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon, available now.
This highly awarded and unique limited release Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is handcrafted only in outstanding vintages from specific rows within Katnook’s distinguished vineyards planted on classic terra rossa soil. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, Katnook Odyssey represents a seamless blend of intense fruit and extended oak maturation.
The 1991 Odyssey was the inaugural vintage, released in 1996 to commemorate the centenary of the first vintage made at Katnook’s woolshed in 1896. The name Odyssey reflected the ongoing journey of Katnook with its roots in the past and sights on the future. The aim was to make a timeless Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, one that would stand alongside the world’s best.
True to its name, Odyssey has journeyed from a vision to an internationally acclaimed wine with a string of international awards to its name.
Classified in the “Outstanding” category in the prestigious Langton’s Classification of Australian Wines since 2005 and awarded 96 Halliday points, the 20th vintage release is a classic Odyssey: a powerful and complex Cabernet Sauvignon that demands time to truly express itself and will cellar gracefully for over 20 years.
Celebrations were held around Australia, the UK and Asia with dinners showcasing back vintages alongside the new release 2013. It's been a veritable Odyssey!
