Reschke Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Hailing from the Coonawarra, This wine is a little bit eurocentric and a little bit savvy (obviously!). It's not a 'full on' passionfruit number, but more gooseberry, lemony and kiwi fruit with an attractive lick of toast and nuts from a touch of oak. The palate is rounded, mellow and creamy which makes it a great accompaniment to fish dishes. It's a bit different and food-friendly, and well worth a crack.

Winemaker's Notes

A sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc lightly touched by fine oak attesting Reschke's commitment to excellence in viticulture and wine making. This innovative bottle with glass stopper contains a classic savoury wine with fragrant fruits, fresh grassiness and crisp zesty finish of less than one percent sugar that is a delight with food.

Reschke's Sauvignon Blanc features a unique glass stopper and etching beneath the removable label. The bottle can be reused for table water, olive oil and salad dressing.

Hints of sweet oak support the generous fruit; a Little smoky and quite full-flavoured; a good example of the fume style. Vino-Lok. 13° alc.

Fume refers to the style or approach that's been taken with this Coonawarra savvy, some oak is deployed to add complexity to all facets. Not overdone, this has gently savoury aromas sitting in beside soft tropicals. The palate carrying additional texture and it works well, fine light tropical flavours and a gently savoury finish.
