Reschke Empyrean Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Regular price $138.00 Sale

‘Empyrean’ is a representation of the absolute best with ‘no expense spared’. The vines are meticulously hand pruned as one measure, to keep the vineyards balanced and yields low. The result is small thick-skinned berries expressing pure Coonawarra character. The resulting wine is complex and lengthy, with malolactic fermentation and maturation being completed in only hand selected new French oak. Each vintage is scrutinized and only the best of them make it through, ensuring quality parameters are met. When they are not achieved, this wine will be blended back into our next offering and not released. The result is a distinguished, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon that certainly leaves a lasting impression. 96 points

"Deep, rich red colour with some brick-red tinges and next to no purple remaining. The wine is big and ballsy, with a lot of character. A burst of mocha from raunchy oak handling, and some charred vegetables. The flavour and aroma are generous and ample, with good structure, line and length. There is still a touch of firmness in the tannins, which are well-balanced. A very complex wine. " - Huon Hooke
