If you’re on the hunt for your new favourite Rosé or a gift for mum this Mother’s Day, Koonara Wines has launched the Emily May Rosé as their first wine for the 2021 vintage.
With big Turkish delight, raspberry and strawberry flesh notes, this Spanish Tempranillo rosé glows with an almost neon-like pink colour.
And like all Koonara’s Wines, the Emily May Rose is vegan friendly, low in sulphur and low in residual sugar.
Koonara founder and Vigneron, Dru Reschke, describes it as a “fruit bomb without the sweetness”.
“Due to the natural sweetness of the fruit, there was no need to add a lot of sugar – just a touch to balance out the natural acidity that you get from growing Spanish varieties in a cool climate.”
Where the name comes from:
The Emily May Rosé makes a great gift for Mother’s Day partly due to its sentimental value (and partly because of its gorgeous colour and taste).
The Rosé pays homage to Dru’s gran, Emiline May Reschke, who lived on the family property until she was 99. Emiline was an accomplished dressmaker, designer, teacher, bridge and scrabble guru, and professional floral artist. Her creative spirit is now encapsulated in this beautiful wine.
The Koonara Emily May Rosé only costs $23 and is available for purchase here.
Organic, sustainable wine
Koonara Wines was the first vineyard in the Coonawarra wine region to be certified to Australian Organic standards.
The owners, Dru and Nicole Reschke pride themselves on creating a sustainable eco-system in their vineyards.
“We have not used any pesticide or herbicides in our Coonawarra vineyards for over a decade, as it can rob the soil of nearly all the good micro-fungi,” Dru says.
