    Cape Banks, Chardonnay 2016

    ,

    ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine

    Est. 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:

    Cape Banks, Pinot Noir 2016

    , ,

    ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar

    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. Mount Gambier is the perfect spot to create really good Pinot. The temperatures between Mount Gambier and the most famous French Pinot Noir region – Burgundy are extremely similar. If you add all the temperatures of the growing season together (minus 10 degree base temp), it gives you the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD). For 1st Cru Areas of Burgundy, the BEDD is 1242 and 1245 for Mt Gambier. Named after the Cape Banks Lighthouse, which is only 30mins drive from our vineyards, near Carpenter Rocks on South Australia’s rugged South East coastline.

    “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

    Razortooth Vineyard, Pinot Noir 2016

    ,

    ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ No residual sugar

    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.

    "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

    ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar

    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.
    "Inky in colour pungent fruit aromas with a hint of cigar box cedar adding to the complexity, a big palate with lashings of tight restrained flavours, which will burst forth in due time, and it has a lovely, lingering tight finish. To really enjoy it now, please decant it, or have some patience as in time this will become a REALLY SUPERB WINE!!" Dan Traucki, wine writer

    Angel’s Peak, Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

    ,

    ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar

    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 Golden Orb, Sparkling Coonawarra Shiraz 2015

    ,

    ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur

    In our Shiraz vineyard lives the Golden Orb spider. During the summer they catch vineyard pests, which is one reason why we haven’t used pesticides in the vineyard for over ten years. What Australia does best! Aged in French oak barrel’s for 2 years, this is a elegant cool climate Shiraz, that will age well until 2025. Our aim is to make a complex sparkling Shiraz. Cool climate Shiraz works great as a sparkling, as the mint notes make it refreshing on hot days when you still want a steak. The oak age has given some nice Christmas cake complexity, but still with fresh blackcurrants and liquorice.

    The Desolate Soil Pinot, Pinot Noir, Mount Gambier 2012

    Only 250 cases were made. This is not your normal reserve Pinot. Made in the style of Grand Cru’s Pinot in Burgundy, this has no tart cherry notes of many top Australian Pinots, but soft, elegant spice and silky plums. The best barrels make all the difference. Aged in the finest French Oak barrels for 27 months, it has created a wine which has seamless oak integration and longevity. Only 8 barrels were selected as the very best, and put into this Reserve. Mt Gambier is the coolest region in mainland Australia. This vineyard has only 10cm of soil covering the rocky limestone, which means the vines struggle, making smaller intense berries, as well as taking on elegant minerally character of the flint and limestone rocks. The temperature between Mt Gambier and Burgundy is extremely similar. If you add all the temperatures of the growing season together (minus 10 degree base temp), it gives you the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD). For 1st Cru Areas of Burgundy, the BEDD is 1242 and 1245 for Mt Gambier. Gold - Wine Showcase Magazine 93 points, BRONZE Melbourne International Wine Competition Download tasting notes PDF

    Ezra’s Gift Coonawarra Shiraz 2016

    , ,

    ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar

    “Deep red colour with strong purple tints. The bouquet is mineral and metallic, with a stony crushed-rock note. It has chocolate and concentrated black fruits on the palate. Some warmth and afterglow from elevated alcohol. A big wine with lots of ripe flavour and richness. Satisfying! A very powerful Coonawarra shiraz.” - 96 points, Huon Hooke 2019
    Koonara is the name of our Coonawarra property, where our family have lived for 100 years. When wine is aged in fine oak barrels, a portion of it evaporates - winemakers call this the ‘Angel’s Share’ - the rest is their gift to us. It was on this sentiment the Koonara angel was born. Ezra is the angel that encourages writers, and helps people unlock their abilities and self expression. Grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre, and aged in the finest French oak 300 litre Hogshead barrels for 18 months before bottling. Strengthening our vines through nutritional balance and bringing in beneficial bugs means no pesticides or herbicides have been needed or used in our Coonawarra vineyards for over 10 years. This wine will age well until 2030 and beyond. We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them. Our 2016 vintage was awarded:

    Ambriel’s Gift, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    , ,

    ♥ Organically grown ♥ Vegan Friendly ♥ Low in sulphur ♥ Dry wine ♥ No residual sugar

    “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.

    “Abstemious yields across an organic certified vineyard, have deemed apt concentration; the choice of well coopered French oak (18 months), detail, a fleck of cedar and focus. The fruit, ferrous and free-flowing, serves as a beam of blackcurrant, blueberry, graphite, olive and a potpourri of herb and leaf across the finish. The tannins are shapely and moreish; svelte for cabernet, and daubed in sage. The oak rises across the finish auguring for a long future ahead, yet there is nothing obtuse. This is exceptional Coonawarra.” Ned Goodwin (James Halliday), 2019
