Reschke Vitulus Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra 2008

Member Review by Caroline Henry:

Dark ruby in color, with a nose of black currants, a hint of vanilla and eucalyptus. Full bodied, bold wine with fine grained tannin and a lifted freshness; lots of flavors of cassis and blackberry, a hint of eucalyptus and a spicy, peppery finish.

Reschke wines guard the true essence of the Coonawarra. A responsibility they take seriously and with pride. Blending a heritage in the finest Cabernet growing landscape of Australia with a strictly managed vineyard, they allow the Coonawarra to express its distinctive allure. Reschke takes great pride in the attention to detail that sets them apart and brings pleasure to lovers of wine. Vineyard Reschke's premium, low yielding vineyards are located on the unique Terra Rossa soils, 7 kilometres north-east of the township of Coonawarra, in the Lower South East of South Australia The vineyard holdings of 360 acres, consist primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, there is also a selection of Merlot, Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Believing that the quality of wine is largely determined in the vineyard, Reschke's vineyard team employ cutting edge viticulture practices to ensure vines consistently produce outstanding fruit from which Peter Douglas creates his masterpieces. The vines are meticulously nurtured; vertical shoot positioned and trellised using a single cordon. By keeping bud numbers controlled (approximately 35-40 buds per vine) through careful hand pruning; yields are heavily restricted and are often less than 2 tonnes per acre. With shoot selection upwards and restricted growth the vines are allowed to 'sprawl' naturally which allows a good, even dappled light into the canopy interior. A state of the art computerised under vine drip irrigation system, sourcing water from underground aquifers, has been installed to the entire vineyard ensuring vines are never under or over watered and function at optimum levels at all times. Reschke has a preference for minimal use of fertilisers and only when they are required, also a preference for using organic nutrient blends are used to stimulate optimum levels of bacteria and fungi in the soil. Preventative programs are preferred methods in regards to pest, disease and weed management. Reschke's cutting edge viticulture practices are implemented to ensure optimum flavour profiles are achieved and vines consistently produce only outstanding fruit. Read less
