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.

New release, and new label design! The painting of the wings was a 1.8m creation Dru did especially for the label.
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.

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 pointsDownload the The Marquise Chardonnay 2012 tasting notes .pdf
