This exclusive glassware range, was designed by Koonara Wines’ owner Dru Reschke.
If you love your bubbles, this glass will make the experience that much better. A standard pour is at the widest part of the glass, and unlike other glasses you can fill it in just one pour without the bubbles overflowing.
It has been coated with Potassium Salt, which typically gives the glass 6 to 8 times the strength of a normal glass. The rim has been cold cut and polished. This allows our refined, fine cut glasses to be very strong and durable.
“Why has it been so hard to find the perfect champagne glass? I just wanted one that I can fill in one pour without the bubbles overflowing. One that is wide enough to give off better aromas. One that has a shorter bottom to reach for polishing. And one that is strong, yet still has a fine edge.
When I couldn’t find that glass, I designed it myself.”

The 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.
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 2030. Here’s to you Trev.

Gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.
This wine is named after our little girl Alice (6 year), who loves to sing songs she has made up. Like this wine, they are beautiful in their purity and make you smile. When she is old enough, this will be our song to her.
Just 40 minutes south of our Coonawarra vineyards are our Mount Gambier vineyards. Mount Gambier is the coolest region in mainland Australia and has perfect conditions for creating excellent Riesling. Razor-sharp flint rocks rise from the thin soils under vines, and the pure underground water flows from the famous Blue Lake.
This vintage is fresh, crisp, lean with some lovely minerality and lemon/citrus characters.
Food match: Vietnamese prawn and glass noodle salad.
Our 2013 vintage was awarded:
“The nose is leathery, earthy and tarry with fruit in the cassis spectrum. Silky smooth in the mouth with powerful oak characters sitting on top of an abundance of varietal fruit.” Equal Top In Category, Winestate Magazine 2018
Ambriel is the angel of communication and guides us to truth and clarity.
The Ambriel’s Gift vineyard sits behind our house in Coonawarra, and is grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre (the average for Coonawarra is 3.5 - 4 tonnes). The grapes were grown with minimal intervention, with only 4 organic sprays for the season. No pesticides have been used in this vineyard for over 10 years.
No expense was spared to make the best wine possible: it was aged in fine grain French oak 300 litre Hogsheads for 26 months before bottling. It contains below organic levels of sulphur, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
