“Beautifully made and quite delicious.” Nick Butler, The Real Review 2019
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.”

- “Lovely translucent pink colour, attractive strawberry & floral aromas with a nice crisp tasty palate with a very appealing finish. IDEAL SUMMER WINE!!” – Dan Traucki, June 2019
- “The palest of pinks in colour, let’s call it salmon. Overt strawberries and maraschino cherries on the nose – musk and rosewater – certainly very expressive. Soft and subtle on the palate; strawberries and cream but no hint of confection. Beautifully made and quite delicious.” 95 points, Nick Butler, The Real Review 2019

Drinking beautifully now.
Bought 6 bottles, one have 1 left!
Think that says it all really... wish I'd bought a few dozen!
A lovely, juicy, dry, good value for money winner! Rated the 2018 Vintage.
Rated the 2016 Vintage.
I rated this 3.7 I thought it was quite nice for a rose. I think we paid $20 which is good.
Peach and waterelon notes, pale salmon colour with light velvet finish. Good with seafood, Mexican and smoked chicken. Rated the 2017 Vintage.
