Reschke now keep the pick of crop for their own label, the most princely harvests of Coonawarra Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz, characterised by their defined regional eloquence and ingratiating palate weight.

Some precious old blocks of ancient vine Grenache still remain after a government sponsored program to cull unproductive vineyards during the 1980s. Yielding excruciatingly small harvests of the most characterful fruit, these wizzened old veterans deliver small batch vintages which are evocative of the old world classics from Cotes du Rhone. The enduring Wirra Wirra were established 1894, their eclectic range belies the splendour of small parcels which are separately handled and bottled for exclusive release. The Absconder draws fruit from vines planted a century ago, it merits a breathing and decant, an articulation about the sublime excellence of old vine Australian Grenache...

Knappstein Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Clare Valley South Australia
Knappstein has been the most conspicuous name in the development of Clare Valley wine since 1895. Originally established by Tim Knappstein as Enterprise Wines, the low yielding Enterprise Vineyard yields some of the region's finest Cabernet Sauvignon, exhibiting bold concentration of flavour, distinctive mint eucalypt flavours, fine, velvety tannins and striking acidity, as derived from the iron rich soils and limestone geology. Replanted in 1969, the calibre and typicity of Enterprise Vineyard has shone consistently throughout the years.

Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller components Merlot and Cabernet Franc, sourced from the estate's Yertabulti, Enterprise and Ackland vineyards. A couple of carefully selected growers from a little further north in the Clare Valley also contribute grapes. The diverse range of vineyards enhances the rich textures. The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. Vinified in a combination of static potter and open fermenters for over a fortnight, with gentle extraction of flavours and texture through pumping over and hand plunging four times daily. The skins are then pressed and the wine allowed to settle before transfer to a selection of fine oak barrels for ageing.
Brooding red colour. Displaying the rich textures of Clare valley, lifted cassis and black currants with subtle Clare eucalypt on the nose. The palate reveals ripe blackberries and black currants with integrated oak. A wine of soft, velvety textures, the fine persistence of flavours is balanced by fine, sandy tannins.
