Our 2018 vintage will be released soon. Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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
2 parts Aperol
1 part Soda Water
150ml Flowers for Lucy
Crushed ice with a sprig of mint

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.
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.
The Big Guns will age well until 2030. Here’s to you Trev.
The 2012 vintage was awarded 96 points by James Halliday and Gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.

Only 250 cases were made. This is not your normal reserve Pinot. Made in the style of Grand Cru’s Pinot in Burgundy, this has no tart cherry notes of many top Australian Pinots, but soft, elegant spice and silky plums. The best barrels make all the difference.
Aged in the finest French Oak barrels for 27 months, it has created a wine which has seamless oak integration and longevity. Only 8 barrels were selected as the very best, and put into this Reserve.
Mt Gambier is the coolest region in mainland Australia. This vineyard has only 10cm of soil covering the rocky limestone, which means the vines struggle, making smaller intense berries, as well as taking on elegant minerally character of the flint and limestone rocks.
The temperature between Mt Gambier and Burgundy is extremely similar. If you add all the temperatures of the growing season together (minus 10 degree base temp), it gives you the Biological Effective Degree Days (BEDD). For 1st Cru Areas of Burgundy, the BEDD is 1242 and 1245 for Mt Gambier.

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.
