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.

I enjoyed the taste it was light fresh crisp and sweet. But I was disappointed in the Moscato due to it not having hardly any bubbles as in a sparkling fizz it was very still and flat.
I would buy again but it needs to have a sparkling texture to be a Moscato for me.
Sorry you didn't get enough bubbles in your moscato! I will follow up with our bottling line, but it should have exactly the same as the last lot. we would love to put more in it, but the bottles we use can only handle 4 gms of CO2 (I would like five, which is what most cider gets). I would like to send you two bottle of 2018 Moscato just in case it is the vintage?
We will send this to you straight away from Coonawarra, so expect late next week.

One of the best Moscatos I tried!
Soft on the palate, sweet and consistent! Medium length! Beautiful floral aromas! Rated the 2018 Vintage.
Perfect as usual
Thank you for the beautiful package which went perfect with the Flowers for Lucy wine. The best Moscato on the market.
Easy to drink
Delicious and so easy to drink! Love that it’s sparkling.

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.
Food match: Christmas turkey or braised chile-spiced short ribs with black beans

Est. 1883, the Cape Banks Lighthouse is a significant orange monument 30 mins drive from our vineyards in Mount Gambier. Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils, and low-yielding vines have helped create a complex wine - indeed a beacon of a Chardonnay.
2016 is, in our opinion, our best vintage yet. Organically grown grapes are starting to show the beautiful fruit spectrum of cool climate fruit.
50% new French oak Hogshead barrels for 9 months, going through malo-latic (2nd ferment) changing the malo acids into lactic acid, the same as in milk and butter, giving it a creamy mouth feel.
50% select yeast ferment - single ferment only keeping the crisp lime, pink lady apple and mineral notes. This is ‘left on lees’ (the dead yeast after ferment) and is stirred to increase flavours and complexity.
Our 2016 vintage was awarded:
The Marquise (Mahr-keez) is a French noblewoman ranking above a countess, and – like this wine – shows elegance, refinement, and sophistication.
The grapes for this cool-climate Chardonnay are grown in Mount Gambier, the coolest mean maximum temperature average of any wine region in mainland Australia.

“Some pretty nifty winemaking decisions have been taken including the time to pick a wild ferment, half in new French Oak (other half in tank), both components undergoing mlf, this is an elegant wine with grapefruit to the fore, but leaving space for a white peach contribution.” James Halliday, 94 pointsThe Marquise Chardonnay 2012 tasting notes

100% Mount Gambier. Everyone needs a Guardian Angel ...
A vibrant celebration of youthful chardonnay. Crisp and quite dry, it has good length and balance, alive with lemon and lime sherbet.
Mount Gambier is the coldest wine region in mainland Australia, allowing flavours in the grapes to develop longer while still keeping their crispness. This produces rich lemon and lime Chardonnay. The rocky flint under only 10cm of soil helps create a complexity of minerality, flavours and long finish.
