"Beautifully made and quite delicious.” Nick Butler, The Real Review 2019Koonara 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.” 5 stars, Katie Spain, Wine Writer, The Adelaide Advertiser, 2019 Trophy for 'Norlift Best Rosé in Show’ at the Cairns Wine Show 2019 95 points, Nick Butler, The Real Review 2019 4.5 stars, Winestate Magazine 2019 Download tasting notes PDF for 2019 vintage Download tasting notes PDF for 2018 vintage Download tasting notes PDF for 2017 vintage
♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugarThe Big Guns is a tribute to my father Trevor Reschke, who was in the Australian national team for clay target shooting, and the state team over 20 times. More often than not you would find him shooting crows in this vineyard just before vintage. To this day crows still avoid it. Here’s to you Trev. We aged this wine for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels. From these, only the most complex flavours from the finest barrels were selected. This year only 3 barrels made the cut, creating only 100 cases. The Big Guns will age well until 2045. “29yo vines, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 15 days on skins, matured for 24 months in new French oak. In the elite group of red wines selling for $100 or more ... The wine is deep crimson-purple, and manages to combine full-bodied weight with balance, length and a supple, black fruit mouthfeel.” James Halliday, 2018 96 Points James Halliday Download tasting notes PDF for 2015 vintage Download tasting notes PDF for 2012 vintage
♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wineEst. 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:

Grown in cool-climate Mount Gambier, South Australia.
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.
Region: Cape Banks, on Mount Gambier’s rugged coastline has the perfect cool-climate and soil conditions for Pinot Noir.
The rocks under the vines are razor sharp, like teeth rising from the soil. We lose a lot of tyres, but this soil makes each vine struggle, keeping the vigour low and flavours complex.
“There is a buzz around pinot grown in Mount Gambier and there’s a good reason for it. Cool growing conditions, rocky, minerally soil, and low-yielding vines contribute to the hints of vanilla and fresh tobacco over spicy cheery notes. This is a more-ish tribute to the local landscape and begs for foggy evenings, an armchair and plenty of time to waste.” - 4 Stars, Katie Spain, Wine Writer Adelaide Advertiser 2019"Vibrant cherry & strawberry aromas, a very smooth and ubber tasty mid weight palate, with a delightful, lingering finish. A CLASS ACT!" - Dan Traucki, wine writer
