Katnook’s 2015 Founder’s Block Shiraz - Coonawarra.

ONE to pair with roast beef and
a lightly peppery sauce.

ONE TO NOTE: IF you're into your roast beef, and the more-so with a peppery sauce that's just spicy enough to give it that little extra oomph, an ideal wine to pair it with it is Katnook's 2015 Founder's Block Shiraz out of Coonawarra.

From a vintage that enjoyed warm summer days and cool nights that were ideal for flavour composition, this is a wine with lovely raspberry and plum fruit flavours, varietal Shiraz pepper and spice overtones and noticeable but not over-powerful oak.

Coonawarra is more well-known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, but makers like Katnook have for some time now been producing equally impressive Shiraz, and which was actually first planted there 120 years ago in 1896.

If you're not so much into peppery sauces as suggested above, other great food matches with this one are grilled lamb chops or barbecued bratwurst sausages.
