2018 Koonara Emily May Rosé Mount Gambier

2018 Koonara Emily May Rosé Mount Gambier

'Fresh light-pink colour with a slightly vanillan, spicy strawberry bouquet with a background hint of herbs. The palate is fruity and ample, with a dab of sweetness in the middle before a clean and balanced finish. A really lovely wine.'

DESCRIPTION
  • Koonara is the name of the property in Coonawarra where the Reschke family has lived for over 100 years, and where current winemaker Dru presides. Dru's Gran – Emiline May Reschke – lived until she was 99 and to celebrate her accomplishments as a dressmaker, designer and teacher of great note, she was front and centre on this most splendid of Pinot based Rose wines.

    Koonara is certified organic, and has been practicising low-intervention winemaking since 2006. 

    The Emily May has been cutting swaithes through the wineshow circuit in recent years, with the 2017 being heralded as one of the finest Rose's made anywhere in the land (Trophy for Best Rose, and Stewards Pick at Royal Sydney). The 2018 follows very much in its predecessors footsteps, with 95 points already from Huon Hooke, and 97 Points and Equal Best Rose from the International Cool Climate Wine Awards 2018.

    Having been released only late last year, it's a wine in fine form. It is a dry style, delicate but complex wine, with hints of Turkish delight, maraschino cherry and raspberry notes.
