    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.”

    The Marquise Chardonnay 2012

    , ,
    The Marquise (Mahr-keez) is a French noblewoman ranking above a countess, and – like this wine – shows elegance, refinement, and sophistication. The grapes for this cool-climate Chardonnay are grown in Mount Gambier, the coolest mean maximum temperature average of any wine region in mainland Australia. Awards:
    • Gold AWC Vienna International Wine challenge 2013
    • Gold Rutherglen Wine Show 2012
    • 4 stars Winestate Magazine
    • James Halliday, 94 points
    “Some pretty nifty winemaking decisions have been taken including the time to pick a wild ferment, half in new French Oak (other half in tank), both components undergoing mlf, this is an elegant wine with grapefruit to the fore, but leaving space for a white peach contribution.” James Halliday, 94 points

    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

    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

    SAVE 50% WHEN YOU BUY 12 BOTTLES. SAVE $119  **Offer ends Friday 20 April 2018. “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.

    Flowers for Lucy, Moscato 2018

    , ,
    Our 2018 vintage is now available. 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.
