“Intense sweet cassis fruit nose and lovely blackcurrant juiciness on the warming palate with its fine tannins and as one judge described – 'salivating acidity'.” - Winestate Magazine 2018
We love the people who make the journey to come and visit our cellar door in Coonawarra; they have Wanderlust. They are the daring explorer, the lover of life with tales of adventures and experiences from their many trips. This wine’s for you, intrepid travellers...
Decanting this wine for an hour will allow you to see the true depth of flavour, but also show you that this wine is almost unique at this price - in that it will get better over 10 years.
No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, and organically grown. The dense fruit and the soft tannins with allow this wine to age well until 2030.

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 professional floral artist.
Here’s to you Gran.
A delicate but complex wine, with hints of Turkish delight and maraschino cherry and raspberry notes.

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.
