IDEAL SUMMER WINE!!" - Dan Traucki, June 2019 "The palest of pinks in colour, let's call it salmon. Overt strawberries and maraschino cherries on the nose - musk and rosewater - certainly very expressive. Soft and subtle on the palate; strawberries and cream but no hint of confection. Beautifully made and quite delicious." 95 points, Nick Butler, The Real Review 2019 4.5 stars Winestate Magazine, 2019 Our Emily May Rosé 2018 vintage was awarded: Gold / 97 points International Cool Climate Awards Wine Show 2018 5 star Gold Huon Hooke - Wine Writer Our Emily May Rosé 2017 vintage was awarded: Trophy for Best Rose at the Sydney Royal Wine Show 2017 Trophy for The Stewards Annual Prize at the Sydney Royal Wine Show 2017 Gold Sydney Royal Wine Show 2017 KPMG Gold Melbourne International Wine Competition 2017 Gold International Cool Climate Wine Show 2017 – Class 23 Our Emily May Rosé 2016 vintage was awarded: Trophy for Best Rose of Show at the Australian Cool Climate Wine Show

Over 100 Years in Coonawarra

The quality of your barrels and winemakers. We believe quality is paramount in creating a wine which is not only good, but consistent and age worthy. 

Our red wines are aged in French Oak. All of our reds are aged in 100% fine-grain French Oak Hogsheads barrels. Some cheaper wines are produced with oak substitutes such as chips, planks and dominos.

Low yields, small grapes and big flavour. Both our Coonawarra vineyards yield 2 tonnes of fruit or less – the average for Coonawarra is 3.5 – 4 tonnes. We grow small grapes, which are about the size of a pea. This allows us to get more skin per litre of juice. Because the colour and flavour in wine comes from the grapes skin, we can get big colour and flavour in our wines.

Great winemaking team. Peter Douglas the former Wynns winemaker is our winemaker, and one of the most respected winemakers and wine judges in Australia. Both Peter, Dru and Nicole take a collaborative approach to producing award winning wines each year. If you’re looking to visit Coonawarra Wineries, Koonara Wines should be on your list! 

In 2017 our Coonawarra vineyards were certified to Australian Organic standards, and no pesticides have been used on the property for over 10 years.
