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.
“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.

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.

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.
The 2012 vintage was awarded 95 points by James Halliday, 4.5 Stars Winestate Magazine and Gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.
Our 2018 vintage will be released soon. Email email@example.com to get a case of the new release.
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.
3 parts Flowers for Lucy
