The Big Guns, Shiraz, Coonawarra 2012

$100.00

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
