WINES OF THE MONTH

  • Koonara Wines Coonawarra Reschke Flowers For Lucy Moscato Mount Gambier
    Flowers for Lucy Moscato, Koonara Wines, Coonawarra
    $18.95

    Flowers for Lucy, Moscato 2017

    , ,
    Three days a week our two little girls would stroll into the Cellar Door to say hello, and almost always they were holding flowers picked along the way. Alice’s flowers would proudly go to her Mum, while Lucy’s - with her arm out stretched proudly - went to me. “These are for you Dad,” she’d say. One day - when she is old enough to enjoy in moderation - the burst of floral flavours in this Moscato will be my flowers to her. Dru and Nicole Reschke.  Great balance of sweetness and refreshing lime, Flowers for Lucy has low alcohol – making it easier to have a glass or two before or after dinner. Food match: Summer berry trifle and homemade icecream.

  • Koonara Wines Coonawarra Lucy and Alice Pinot Gris Mount Gambier
    Koonara Wines Coonawarra Lucy and Alice Pinot Gris Mount Gambier
    $20.00

    Lucy & Alice, Pinot Gris, Mount Gambier 2016

    , ,
    Lucy & Alice is named after our two beautiful daughters. 2016 is, in our option, our best vintage yet. Crisp, fresh lively nashi pear with oyster shell mineral tones. Hints of guava notes stemming from the time on skins and the partial barrel ferment. As it warms in the glass, hints of honey and strawberry flesh shine through. Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety. Pinot Grigio is Italian, and Pinot Gris is French. “Grigio” and “Gris” both translate to grey, which is the colour of the grayish-blue fruit.

  • Koonara Wines Coonawarra Winery Sparkling campaign glass Rouge Vintner
    $49.95

    Rouge Vintner Sparkling Glass Gift Box (set of 4 glasses)

    ,
    The Rouge Vintner glassware range is for the wine obsessed. Designed by our very own Dru Reschke, after 20 years in the wine industry he wanted to create a glass that was not only beautiful but practical. Each glass has been coated with potassium salt which typically gives the glass 5 times the strength of a normal glass - this makes them suitable for use in domestic and commercial dishwashers. The rim has been cold cut and polished, this allows each glass to not only be fine and lightweight but also very strong and durable. Each gift box contains 4 glasses and makes an excellent wedding, engagement or Christmas present.

    Dru's checklist:

    "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."

    Sparkling glass features:

    • Designed to prevent bubbles overflowing when pouring
    • Patented 15oz/150ml curve
    • 5 x stronger than normal glass
    • Designed for maximum sparkling aroma
    • Easy to reach bottom for polishing
    • A fine, cold-cut rim

    Dru's checklist:

    Why has it been so hard to find a wine glass that’s just right for both red and white? One that is big, but can still fit in the dishwasher. One that gives precisely five glasses from each bottle without needing a line. One with a fine rim, but 5 x stronger than normal glass. When I couldn’t find that glass, I designed it myself.

    • A fine cold-cut lip
    • 5 x stronger than normal glass
    • Ideal for both red & white wine

One that can be laid on its side to aerate a worthy whiskey. One that has a fine edge whilst being 5x stronger than normal glass. When I couldn’t find that glass, I designed it myself.
