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 a professional floral artists. Here's to you Gran.
Delicate waves of strawberries and cream, cherry and raspberries dance around a sturdy, dry backbone.
Crisp pink lady apples, white peach and grapefruit zet. 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 mean grey, which is the hue present in the colour of the grapes. Winemakers in Australia describe Gris as a late picked, more complex wine with crisp acidity.
"There is a buzz around pinot grown in Mount Gambier and theres is a good reason for it. Cool growing conditions, rocky mineraly soils and low yielding vines have helped create a complex bouquet awash with true Pinot characters. It has hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cherry notes. This is a more-ish tribute to the local landscape and begs for foggy evenings, an armchair and plenty of time to waste" Katie Spain, wine Writer, Adelaide Adveriser 2019
