Est. 1883, the Cape Banks Lighthouse is a significant orange monument standing as a sentinel on South Australia’s rugged South East coastline.

 

Region
100% Mount Gambier.

The grapes for this cool-climate Chardonnay are grown in Mount Gambier, the coolest mean maximum temperature average of any wine region in mainland Australia.

Winemakers notes

50% new French oak Hogshead barrels for 4 months, going through malo-latic (2nd ferment) changing the malo acids into lactic acid, the same as in milk and butter, giving it a creamy mouth feel.

50% select yeast ferment - single ferment only keeping the crisp lime, pink lady apple and mineral notes. This is ‘left on lees’ (the dead yeast after ferment) and is stirred to increase flavours and complexity.

We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them.
Dru Reschke - owner and vigneron
