    Ambriel’s Gift, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    ,
    “The nose is leathery, earthy and tarry with fruit in the cassis spectrum. Silky smooth in the mouth with powerful oak characters sitting on top of an abundance of varietal fruit.” Equal Top In Category, Winestate Magazine 2018
    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. Our 2015 vintage was awarded:

    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. Our 2015 Vintage was awarded:
    • 96 Points James Halliday
    Our 2012 vintage was awarded:
    • 96 points by James Halliday
    • Gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.

    The Head Honcho, Coonawarra Cab 2015

    ,
    The Head Honcho was created from our 10 acre single Cabernet vineyard. This vineyard produces small berries full of intense flavour, harvesting a tiny 1 tonne per acre. In the 2012 vintage, it had only organic additives, and no pesticides (none have been used in this vineyard for 10 years). 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, with only 888 bottles being released. The French Oak barrels have integrated beautifully in this wine. The darkest of dark berries went into this; blueberry, cassis, and molasses over mint. Extremely long finish. The Head Honcho will age well until 2042.
