    The Big Guns, Shiraz, Coonawarra 2012

    ,
    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. This 3 acre vineyard produces tiny, intense berries, growing only 2.4 tonnes per acre. Aged for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels; from these, the finest barrels are selected. This year only 3 barrels made the cut, creating only 100 cases, with only 888 bottles being released. Here's to you Trev. "A seriously good shiraz, wielding its power through persuasion, not brute force; high quality French oak is certainly obvious, but the waves of black fruits and ripe tannins carry the oak - or vice versa. Extended cellaring will be handsomely repaid." - James Halliday 96 points Gold Medal Rob Geddes MW, Gold Melbourne International Wine Competition 2016 Download tasting notes PDF

    The Head Honcho, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2012

    ,
    The Head Honcho was created from our 10 acre single Cabernet vineyard. This vineyard produces small berries full of intense flavour, harvesting a tiny 1 tonne per acre. In the 2012 vintage, it had only organic additives, and no pesticides (none have been used in this vineyard for 10 years). 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, with only 888 bottles being released. The French Oak barrels have integrated beautifully in this wine. The darkest of dark berries went into this; blueberry, cassis, and molasses over mint. Extremely long finish. The Head Honcho will age well until 2042. "Even more concentrated and focused than the Family Reserve Ambriel's Gift, with more blackcurrant fruit and more tannins." - James Halliday 95 points "Intense black fruit aromas with a sweet oak lift. The palate is dark and closed at the moment with very pure varietal fruit characters and excellent tannin definition." - 4.5 stars Winestate Magazine July/August 2016
