“Friends are angels that lift you up when your wings have forgotten how to fly. Many people walk through your life, but true friends leave footprints in your heart.” So raise your glass – here’s to friends.
Mount Gambier is even cooler than Malborough in NZ, so the long growing period allows the grapes to develop an abundance of flavours without losing the crisp freshness of true cool-climate grapes.
Single vineyard. Crisp apple and gooseberry notes, perfect for natural oysters, fresh salmon sashimi or chicken salad.
Three days a week our two little girls would stroll into the Cellar Door to say hello, and almost always they were holding flowers picked along the way. Alice’s flowers would proudly go to her Mum, while Lucy’s - with her arm out stretched proudly - went to me. “These are for you Dad,” she’d say.
One day - when she is old enough to enjoy in moderation - the burst of floral flavours in this Moscato will be my flowers to her. Dru and Nicole Reschke.
Great balance of sweetness and refreshing lime, Flowers for Lucy has low alcohol – making it easier to have a glass or two before or after dinner.
Food match: Summer berry trifle and homemade icecream.
3 parts Flowers for Lucy
2 parts Aperol
1 part Soda Water
150ml Flowers for Lucy
Crushed ice with a sprig of mint

Named after our two beautiful daughters.
Crisp pink lady apples, white peach and grapefruit zest. As it warms in the glass, hints of honey and peach flesh shine through.
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety. Pinot Grigio is Italian, Pinot Gris is French. “Grigio” and “Gris” both meaning grey which is the hue present in colour of the grapes. Winemakers in Australia describe Gris as a late picked, more complex, wine with crisp acidity.

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.

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
