    The Guardian Angel, Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot, Mount Gambier 2016

    ,
    When wine is aged in fine oak barrels, a portion of it evaporates - winemakers call this the ‘angel’s share’. It was on this sentiment the Koonara angel was born. Mount Gambier is the coolest region in mainland Australia. This produces rich lemon and lime Chardonnay, and luscious Pinot Noir. This coupled with the minerality from the rocky flint under just 10cm of soil in our Mount Gambier vineyard, helps create a complexity of flavours and long finish. Food match: Coconut crusted lobster medallions with chilli and lime zest on a bed of pear, rocket and mango. Download tasting notes PDF

    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.

    Angel’s Footprints, Sauvignon Blanc, Mount Gambier 2016

    ,
    “Friends are angels that lift you up when your wings have forgotten how to fly. Many people walk through your life, but true friends leave footprints in your heart.” So raise your glass - here’s to friends.

    Part barrel ferment has given this cool climate wine layers of complexity, with guava, crisp pink lady apples and gooseberry notes.

    Mount Gambier is even cooler than Marlborough in New Zealand, so the long growing period allows the grapes to develop an abundance of flavours without losing the crisp freshness of a true cool-climate grape. This vineyard, and all our vineyards, only average four sprays per year for disease, using only organically certified products so as not to harm our delicate ecosystem. Download tasting notes PDF

    Koonara Wines Coonawarra A Song for Alice Riesling Mount Gambier 2015 South Australia
    $20.00

    A Song for Alice, Riesling, Mount Gambier 2015

    ,
    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.

  • Koonara Wine, Coonawarra, Mount Gambier - Cool Climate wines, Chardonnay
    Koonara Wines Coonawara Winery Cape Banks Chardonnay
    $25.00

    Cape Banks, Chardonnay, Mount Gambier 2016

    ,
    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. Download tasting notes PDF

    Cape Banks, Pinot Noir, Mount Gambier 2013

    , ,
    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. Food match: Tea smoked duck breast and roast potatoes with truffle salt. “Fragrant, fine and savoury, typical of Mount Gambier’s very cool climate; juicy red fruits, plus a superfine gossamer of tannins providing more flavour than the usual texture.” – James Halliday, 92 points Swedish Wine Challenge, Winestate Magazine, 4 stars Download tasting notes PDF

    Wanderlust, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2014

    , ,
    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. Download tasting notes PDF

    Angel’s Peak, Shiraz, Coonawarra 2014

    ,
    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 Shiraz, Coonawarra 2015

    ,
    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 licorice. Food match: Christmas turkey or braised chile-spiced short ribs with black beans Download tasting notes PDF

    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, Shiraz, Coonawarra 2009 – 375ml

    ,

    100% Coonawarra | Single vineyard

    Ezra is the angel that encourages writers, and helps unlock self expression.

    A cooler vintage in Coonawarra has allowed pepper characteristics to creep into the 2009 Shiraz, which additional layer of complexity to an already elegant wine. A tiny 1 tonne per acre was grown, and aged in 100% new fine grain French Grand Reserve Hogshead (300 litre) barrels.

    The 2009 Ezra’s has a huge length of flavour of toasty mocha, blackcurrants, cloves and smoked vanilla.

    It will age well to 2023 and beyond.

    Ambriel’s Gift, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2014

    ,
    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. Download tasting notes PDF
