    Live Wine Tasting 3 Pack

    Join our Live Facebook Wine Tasting with Dru Reschke, Thursday 5 September from 8pm (ACST time). Emily May Rosé, Limestone Coast 2019 ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine Koonara is the name of our property in Coonawarra which has been in our family for over 100 years, and where my Gran – Emiline May Reschke – lived until she was 99. Accomplished dressmaker and designer, teacher, bridge and scrabble guru, and professional floral artist. Here’s to you Gran. “Oh, spectacular sangiovese. The Italian red variety was treated with the love and respect it deserves in this demure rosé. It’s an alluring pale pink, pretty, poised, playful, and complex – like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Delicate waves of strawberries and cream, cherry and raspberries dance around a sturdy, dry backbone. The wine is named after Dru Reschke’s gran, Emiline May Reschke – a fitting tip of the hat to a woman who lived until the ripe old age of 99.” Katie Spain. Trophy for ‘Norlift Best Rosé in Show’ at the Cairns Wine Show 2019 95 Points, 95 points, Nick Butler, The Real Review, 2019 5 stars, Katie Spain, Wine Writer, The Adelaide Advertiser, 2019   Angel’s Peak, Coonawarra Shiraz 2016 ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar 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 Double Gold – 13th G100 International Wine and Spirits Awards 2019   Wanderlust, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar 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. “Inky in colour pungent fruit aromas with a hint of cigar box cedar adding to the complexity, a big palate with lashings of tight restrained flavours, which will burst forth in due time, and it has a lovely, lingering tight finish. To really enjoy it now, please decant it, or have some patience as in time this will become a REALLY SUPERB WINE!!” Dan Traucki, wine writer

Small batch and family made wines

We are proudly a small family owned winery based in Coonawarra. Our Coonawarra vineyards produce organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, which are planted on Coonawarra’s famous red terra rossa soil.

Just 90km down the road our Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Sparkling Chardonnay, Chardonnay, Rosé, Riesling, and Pinot Noir grapes are grown in Mount Gambier – ‘the coolest region in mainland Australia’. The long growing period allows these grapes to develop an abundance of flavours without losing their crisp freshness.

A Certified Organic Vineyard since 2017

We grow our grapes chemical free and have done so for over 10 years. In 2017 we received certification from the Australian Certified Organic Standards for our Coonawarra Vineyard.

Finding new ways to reduce our impact on the land is very important to us. We grow selected flowers to attract ‘good bugs’ that eat our ‘bad bugs’. We also spend as much time focused on what’s under the ground – soil heath helps keep our vines strong, so pests and disease have less impact. Find out more about how we are working to reduce our impact on the planet with our spray program.

Preservative Free Wine

Sulphur in wine is used as a preservative and helps kill unwanted yeasts, bacteria, and protects wine from oxidation. Too much sulphur in wine can give people allergies and headaches – that’s why all our wines are made with below organic levels of sulphur, less than 100ppm. Australian Food standards allow for a maximum of 250ppm in dry wine, and up to 300ppm for sweet wines.

No Residual Sugar in our Wines

There is no residual sugar in any of our red and white wines. They still taste sweet, showing perfect balance in our vineyards.

* The exception to this is in our Moscato, and just a touch in our Sparkling Shiraz. With these two exceptions, our wines are completely diet friendly; including Ketogenic.

All our wines are vegan friendly and gluten free.
