    Winemakers comments

    No expense has been spared to make the best wine possible: these grapes were grown with only organic additions in the vineyard (for the past ten years), and minimal intervention, with only 4 organic sprays for the season.

    A tiny 1 tonne per acre was grown, and aged in 100% new fine grain French Grand Reserve Hogshead (300 litre) barrels for 26 months.

    A dense, deep mocha and blackberry wine, with velvety tannins. The colour is still a deep red with purple hues, so will hold colour well for the next 20 years.

    James Halliday - Tasting notes

    “Estate-grown, matured in French oak (some obviously new) for 26 months, custom made, strongly branded bottles. Deeply coloured, the flavours range through cassis, choc mint and strong pencilly oak. The tannins are substantial due to small berries and bunches - the wine cries out for time.” 94 Points - James Halliday

    Angel’s Peak, Shiraz 2013 – 12 bottles

    ,

    Limited Stock / only 4 dozen left!

    When wine is aged in fine oak barrels, a portion of it evaporates - winemakers call this the ‘Angel’s Share’. It was on this sentiment the Koonara angel was born. The name ‘Angels Peak’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of ‘peaks’ in the very flat Coonawarra.

    Tasting notes

    “Relatively light colour, but there is an abundance of fruit neatly balanced between sweet berries and more spicy/savoury notes, undoubtedly assisted by the moderate alcohol. The more you taste this wine, the more it impresses (in repeating cycles).”  – James Halliday, 95 Points

    Winemakers comments

    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.

    Drink now until 2023.

    James Halliday - Tasting notes

    “Yielded only 2.5 tonnes per ha; matured for 24 months in French hogsheads. A complex medium to full-bodied wine with interlocking streams of fruit, oak and tannins.” 93 Points - James Halliday

    Vineyard comments

    The 2012 Coonawarra vintage is – in most winemakers opinion – one of the best Coonawarra has seen, along with good winter rains resulting in a full soil moisture profile and ample vine carbohydrate reserves.

    No pesticides, and only 4 purely organic sprays for mildew prevention for the whole season.

    100% new French oak barrels for 2 years, 0% residual sugar, and below organic levels of sulphur (89 parts per million only).

    It will age well to 2027 and beyond.

    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.

    “There is a buzz around pinot grown in Mount Gambier and there’s a good reason for it. Cool growing conditions, rocky, minerally soil, and low-yielding vines contribute to the hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cheery notes. This is a more-ish tribute to the local landscape and begs for foggy evenings, an armchair and plenty of time to waste.” 4 Stars, Katie Spain, Wine Writer Adelaide Advertiser 2019

    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.

    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.

    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 liquorice.

    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.

    “Deep red colour with strong purple tints. The bouquet is mineral and metallic, with a stony crushed-rock note. It has chocolate and concentrated black fruits on the palate. Some warmth and afterglow from elevated alcohol. A big wine with lots of ripe flavour and richness. Satisfying! A very powerful Coonawarra shiraz.” - 96 points, Huon Hooke 2019

    This wine will age well until 2030 and beyond. We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them. Our 2016 vintage was awarded:
