James Halliday – Tasting notes

“Inky purple-crimson; an uninhibited, full-bodied Cabernet with layered and powerful blackcurrant fruit, oak and tannins all speaking from the same page.” 94 points – James Halliday

The 2012 Coonawarra Vintage is €“ in most winemakers opinion €“ one of the best Coonawarra has seen, along with good winter rains resulting in a full soil moisture profile and ample vine carbohydrate reserves. No expense has been spared to make the best wine possible: these grapes were grown with only organic additions in the vineyard (for the past ten years), and minimal intervention, with only 4 organic sprays for the season. Grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre, and aged in fine grain French oak 300 litre Hogsheads for 19 months before bottling, with below organic levels of sulphur.

In 1906, Henry Albert and Alice Jane Reschke came to Coonawarra to build a life for their family. The had a cattle stud.

Koonara is the name of the Reschke family property in Coonawarra.

Today over 100 years on, the family still live in Coonawarra.

The Cattle stud on the property is still there, but the vineyards and wine have been our passion since 1988. The land chosen for the vineyards was carefully selected out of the 3,000 acres available on the property in Coonawarra. Every year since 1991, 30 Cases of Koonara Wine has been made for family and friends.

In 1999, the first Koonara wines were made available for the public, with a very limited number of cases, held back to give the wines a chance to mature in the bottle.

The vineyards are naturally kept at an average of 2 tonnes or less an acre. We believe quality is paramount in creating a wine which is not only good, but consistent and age worthy each year.

We are very proud of our wines and hope you enjoy them.
