    Angel’s Peak, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra 2013

    , ,
    BUY 12 AND SAVE $95.40 ** ends Friday 20 April 2018 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, and organically grown. “This is a very good cabernet at the price; there is a welter of cassis-accented fruit, fine, persistent, tannins and well integrated oak. A serious bargain with excellent length.”

    Rouge Vintner Stemless 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 a stemless wine glass that can also serve whiskey? One that, if tipped over, bounces right back up again. 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.

    Glass features:

    • A fine cold-cut lip
    • 5 x stronger than normal glass
    • Ideal for both red and white wine & spirits
    • The widest point is 150ml (5oz) for maximum aeration and exactly 5 glasses from every bottle

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.

    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

    Angel’s Peak, Shiraz, Coonawarra 2015

    , ,
    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. “A complexity of sweet briary fruit and spicy oak aromas; hints of pencil shavings. Attractive maturation characters on the palate mingling generous plum fruit and crisp acid.” - Winestate Magazine. Food match: Char-grilled eye fillet with wasabi and mascarpone soft cheese. 5 star and Equal Top In Category, Winestate Magazine 2018 Download tasting notes PDF – 2015 vintage Download tasting notes PDF – 2014 vintage

    A Song for Alice, Riesling, Mount Gambier 2013

    , ,
    Aged release 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.

    Flowers for Lucy, Moscato 2018

    , ,
    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.
