    Cape Banks, Chardonnay 2016

    ,
    Est. 1883, the Cape Banks Lighthouse is a significant orange monument 30 mins drive from our vineyards in Mount Gambier. Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex wine - indeed a beacon of a Chardonnay. 2016 is, in our opinion, our best vintage yet. Organically grown grapes are starting to show the beautiful fruit spectrum of cool climate fruit. 50% new French oak Hogshead barrels for 9 months, going through malo-latic (2nd ferment) changing the malo acids into lactic acid, the same as in milk and butter, giving it a creamy mouth feel. 50% select yeast ferment - single ferment only keeping the crisp lime, pink lady apple and mineral notes. This is ‘left on lees’ (the dead yeast after ferment) and is stirred to increase flavours and complexity. Download tasting notes PDF

    Cape Banks, Pinot Noir 2016

    ,
    Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes. Mount Gambier is the perfect spot to create really good Pinot. The temperatures between Mount Gambier and the most famous French Pinot Noir region – Burgundy are extremely similar. If you add all the temperatures of the growing season together (minus 10 degree base temp), it gives you the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD). For 1st Cru Areas of Burgundy, the BEDD is 1242 and 1245 for Mt Gambier. Named after the Cape Banks Lighthouse, which is only 30mins drive from our vineyards, near Carpenter Rocks on South Australia’s rugged South East coastline. Food match: Tea smoked duck breast and roast potatoes with truffle salt.

    Razortooth Vineyard, Pinot Noir 2016

    , ,

    Grown in cool-climate Mount Gambier, South Australia.

    Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes.

    Region: Cape Banks, on Mount Gambier’s rugged coastline has the perfect cool-climate and soil conditions for Pinot Noir.

    The rocks under the vines are razor sharp, like teeth rising from the soil. We lose a lot of tyres, but this soil makes each vine struggle, keeping the vigour low and flavours complex.

    Food match: Tea smoked duck breast and roast potatoes with truffle salt.

    Wanderlust, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    , ,
    We love the people who make the journey to come and visit our cellar door in Coonawarra; they have Wanderlust. They are the daring explorer, the lover of life with tales of adventures and experiences from their many trips. This wine’s for you, intrepid travellers... Decanting this wine for an hour will allow you to see the true depth of flavour, but also show you that this wine is almost unique at this price - in that it will get better over 10 years. No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, and organically grown. The dense fruit and the soft tannins with allow this wine to age well until 2030. “Slightly porty notes to the intense sweet cassis fruit nose and lovely blackcurrant juiciness on the warming palate with its fine tannins and as one judge described – “salivating acidity”.” - Winestate Magazine 2018 5 Star and Equal Top In Category, Winestate Magazine 2018 Download tasting notes PDF – 2015 vintage Download tasting notes PDF – 2014 vintage

    Angel’s Peak, Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

    ,
    New release, and new label design! The painting of the wings was a 1.8m creation Dru did especially for the label. The name ‘Angels Peak’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of ‘peaks’ in the very flat Coonawarra. No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, 18 month in 100% French Oak Barrels (20% new). This wine has seamless mint dark chocolate and coffee notes, over silky mulberries and molasses. Lift this bottle to the light and try to see through the neck. The density of colour shows the quality of the grapes that went into this wine. Since flavour and deep colour in Shiraz comes from the skin, we grow our grapes smaller, about the size of a pea. Food match: Char-grilled eye fillet with wasabi and mascarpone soft cheese. 5 star and Equal Top In Category, Winestate Magazine 2018 Download tasting notes PDF – 2015 vintage Download tasting notes PDF – 2014 vintage

    The Golden Orb, Sparkling Coonawarra Shiraz 2015

    ,
    In our Shiraz vineyard lives the Golden Orb spider. During the summer they catch vineyard pests, which is one reason why we haven’t used pesticides in the vineyard for over ten years. What Australia does best! Aged in French oak barrel’s for 2 years, this is a elegant cool climate Shiraz, that will age well until 2025. Our aim is to make a complex sparkling Shiraz. Cool climate Shiraz works great as a sparkling, as the mint notes make it refreshing on hot days when you still want a steak. The oak age has given some nice Christmas cake complexity, but still with fresh blackcurrants and licorice. Food match: Christmas turkey or braised chile-spiced short ribs with black beans Download tasting notes PDF

    Ezra’s Gift Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

    ,
    Koonara is the name of our Coonawarra property, where our family have lived for 100 years. When wine is aged in fine oak barrels, a portion of it evaporates - winemakers call this the ‘Angel’s Share’ - the rest is their gift to us. It was on this sentiment the Koonara angel was born. Ezra is the angel that encourages writers, and helps people unlock their abilities and self expression. Grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre, and aged in the finest French oak 300 litre Hogshead barrels for 18 months before bottling. Strengthening our vines through nutritional balance and bringing in beneficial bugs means no pesticides or herbicides have been needed or used in our Coonawarra vineyards for over 10 years. This wine will age well until 2030 and beyond. We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them. 2012 vintage got 93 Points from James Halliday Download 2016 tasting notes PDF Download 2012 tasting notes PDF

    Ambriel’s Gift, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    ,
    Ambriel is the angel of communication and guides us to truth and clarity. The Ambriel’s Gift vineyard sits behind our house in Coonawarra, and is grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre (the average for Coonawarra is 3.5 - 4 tonnes). The grapes were grown with minimal intervention, with only 4 organic sprays for the season. No pesticides have been used in this vineyard for over 10 years. No expense was spared to make the best wine possible: it was aged in fine grain French oak 300 litre Hogsheads for 26 months before bottling. It contains below organic levels of sulphur, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. 94 points - James Halliday. Download the 2014 tasting notes PDF

    The Big Guns, Coonawarra Shiraz 2015

    ,
    The Big Guns is a tribute to my father Trevor Reschke, who was in the Australian national team for clay target shooting, and the state team over 20 times. More often than not you would find him shooting crows in this vineyard just before vintage. To this day crows still avoid it. We aged this wine for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels. From these, only the most complex flavours from the finest barrels were selected. This year only 3 barrels made the cut, creating only 100 cases. The Big Guns will age well until 2030. Here’s to you Trev. The 2012 vintage was awarded 96 points by James Halliday and Gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition. Download tasting notes
