DESCRIPTION
  • Dru Reschke is Koonara wines. Brother to the famous eponymously named winery, Dru's operation out of the old family estate in Coonawarra is a different kettle of fish altogether to his family's more 'prosaic' affair. Dru's passion is to remind the world of how good Coonawarra reds can be, while retaining the symbiotic charm of the region and the style of wine that put Australia on the map (read big, boisterous and full of charm). These days he farms entirely organically, and has a vineyard first mentality that seems to be doing wonders for what's in the bottle.

    Ezra's Gift is named after both the fraction of wine that evaporates during cellaring and the angel that encourages writers, and helps people unlock their self-expression and abilities. Grown at a tiny 1 tonne per acre, and aged in the finest French oak 300 litre Hogshead barrels for 18 months before bottling, it is a Shiraz from the BIG end of town. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Single vineyard, low-yielding expression of Coonawarra Shiraz. Made from fruit harvested at 1 tonne to the acre, where the vine-age has become sufficient enough to ensure ripening and provide concentration of the flavours. No pesticides are used, and a minimal sulphur regime is provided at bottling.

    Alcohol - 14.5%

    TASTING NOTES

    Thick, dense and saturating Shiraz fruit with blue and black fruits the predominant flavours in this early stage of its life. The palate is coating with a mineral and crushed rock feel, but also ripe and lavish fruit/tannin. Intense, and satisfying!

  • REVIEWS

    'Deep red colour with strong purple tints. The bouquet is mineral and metallic, with a stony crushed-rock note. It has chocolate and concentrated black fruits on the palate. Some warmth and afterglow from elevated alcohol. A big wine with lots of ripe flavour and richness. Satisfying! A very powerful Coonawarra shiraz.'
