Ezra’s Gift Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

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:

  • 96 points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
  • 92 points – Mike Bennie, Wine Writer
  • Silver – Australian Small Winemakers Show
