The Donna Review
Excited to open a 2012 wine, and it is rather brown so not so sure. But it is oaky, full of flavour and goes particularly well with a vegetarian dish. It is a rather nice wine, so not sure what I expected from a 2012 wine – maybe more!
Wine Rating: 3.5/5
Man with no Palate Review
The bottle says suitable for aging so after 8 years and no appropriate cellar has it been worth the wait. To be honest I really don’t know but with a pulse chilli this is actuarly a really nice complimentary wine. It is smooth, yet slightly harsh, but does go with spicy food really well. Therefore, it is difficult to mark this wine without food.

Reschke Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Bottle Label Description
The Reschke Commitment to quality is from budburst to bottle. The pristine Coonawarra environment and rich Terra Rossa soils provide an ideal canvas for the best Cabernet Sauvignon. Combine this with rigorous hand pruning and the meticulous sustainable vineyard practices of the Reschke team, including no chemical insecticide use, and the resultant parcels of fruit are extremely rewarding. Fruit is served from Reschke own low yielding vines. Time and dedication are taken in the winery crafting grapes into wine, with maturation occurring in new and older French barrels. The wine is an elegant, fruit driven style and like all Reschke cabernets it will age beautifully if cellared with care.
2012 is considered of the best vintages for two decades. Coonawarra experienced good winter and spring rainfall, advancing early budburst, with minimal fruit concern. wine canopy was pleasing while fruit set was naturally reduced by wine. Warmer temperature from November to February, helped ripening before temperaturs moderated providing cool nights to slow the ripening. The dry, mild weater patterns during ripening permitted a deep flavour profile to develop the classic, cool climate, savoury, coloured aromas. Ultimately an early harvest produced intense dark fruit with rich tannins.
