WINE OF THE WEEK: Angel’s Peak Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

ONE FOR LUNCH: When Henry and Alice Reschke migrated to Coonawarra in 1906 and started a cattle stud, they also planted a small vineyard. Over the years their families put growing focus on the vines, and in 1991 started a nice tradition of making 30 cases of wine every vintage to give family and friends.

By 1999 the wine had become so popular they decided to go to market with it, labelling it Koonara after the stud property. Their now-released Angel’s Peak label Cabernet Sauvignon from the excellent 2004 vintage is a sweet, soft wine with dominant blackberry and vanilla coffee flavours, making great value at just $14.95 – and ideal with a good cheese and fruit platter by the fire.
